Directions
  1. Clean and peel carrots, then grate them finely with a box grater or food processor.
  2. Make a dressing by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon, and sugar with a pinch of salt and pepper. Adjust the seasonings to your taste.
  3. Toss the carrots with the dressing and the parsley. Be careful not to over-dress; as David says, "the carrots should be moistened and glistening, not swimming in dressing."
  4. Garnish with cubed avocado. Serve promptly.
