Author Notes: This is a non-recipe salad that graces our dinner table almost every night. The simplicity of this salad is my attempt at walking in the great Marcella Hazan's footsteps - slice up some veggies and season only with good quality olive oil and vinegar.
Endlessly adaptable, the following ingredient list is an invitation to pull out a box grater, fresh veggies, and go to town. —yellowbird
large granny smith apple
good quality olive oil
good quality balsamic
- Grate the carrot along the large holes of a box grater, and then do the same for the apple (don't worry about removing the skin). Place in a bowl big enough to contain (and toss) the ingredients.
- Season liberally with olive oil, then a little more conservatively with balsamic. Toss and correct for taste.
