Thai Carrot Salad

Author Notes: I became a big fan of grated carrot salads on study abroad in Paris - I think I ate it for lunch every other day. This is my Thai version. I sometimes add cucumber, green mango and lump crab to make it a main course, but I like it with just carrot as a side to a simply prepared seafood.VanessaS
