CookTheBookFriday ~ MPK Grated Carrot Salad

 At CookTheBookFriday this week is a simpler version of carrots which went through a Moulinex grater called a mouli-julienne, a gadget which is impossible to find outside of France - well it is available - a version of it - at Amazon's but they do not deliver to where I am.... Hence I used one of the set-of-three microplane graters I own - the one with the picture of a carrot (among other food stuff) on its plastic protective cover!  It seems that this set is no longer available at amazon but here is a similar set I found.  And I do have something that look like >this< but it seems to be missing in action (or non-action)... anyways - the recipe said Grated... so here is it!

I made very little.... :)
half an organic carrot - grated
hand torn coriander leaves - a handful
mixed well together: 
olive oil, Dion mustard, honey, salt and lime juice
 Delicious! I paired it with chicken from last night's supper >here<
it was part of my dinner too!

  1. Nice! I love how you made such a tiny amount! Carrots were a pain to grate!

  2. I made a smaller amount too. This was delicious wasn't it?

  3. I've used two carrots too, and it was a chore to grate those carrots! Luckily the taste makes up for it! Lovely meal!

  4. Who says you can't minimize! I only used three carrots, but you beat me at that. I have a bowl full and will probably eat it for a week. It's good though, and we really liked it.

  5. I think as this carrot salad sits in the refrigerator, it grows or expands. No matter how many times I served it with my meal or took a forkful or two for a snack but there always was more. At the end of the week, I tossed the remaining portions. Your two meals look delicious.

  6. Wow, that must have been a BIG carrot. It looks like much more than I would expect from just half a carrot. Nice salad!

  7. Very nice, Emily! I'll second Betsy--that must've been a big carrot! :) Glad it worked well for you.
