It's disappointing that carrots are the forgotten stepchild of the the vegetable bin. They're readily available and have global diversity; they're adaptable to the flavor profile of so many cuisines. Just think - carrots quietly inhabit the background and remain a staple ingredient in recipes around the world: American, European, Middle Eastern, Asian and Mediterranean. - FamilyStyle Food
This Vietnamese-inspired recipe highlights the essence of carrots while making them a centerpiece; raw carrots have a sweet, refreshing crunch that can showcase the tang and heat of Southeast Asian flavors.
Test Kitchen Notes
I love the combination of peanuts and carrots with a little acid and this salad is an interesting twist. The flavors are bright and fresh and will be a great addition to a buffet or alongside some other Asian-themed dishes. My teens also liked this dish! When I make it again, I'll probably cut back the lime juice just a little. Serve this soon after making, when it's at its tastiest! —healthierkitchen
