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
In This Recipe
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.
