David Lebovitz's Carrot Salad


Serves 6 to 8 as a side dish

  • 7 large carrots
  • Half a bunch of flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  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.
