We had a salad-themed dinner last evening. Potato, fruit, pasta, carrot, and cucumber salads were on parade. M and D made the potato and fruit salads, Susan made the pasta salad, and I made carrot and cucumber salads. I made a pretty normal cucumber salad that we all know and love, though I made it undersweet, much to my chagrin. The carrot salad I got from Mark Bittman, and it was delicious.
More or less, it goes like this:
peel and grate 1 1/2 lbs carrots
combine juice 2 oranges, 1 lemon and 2 tbsp olive oil
add 1 tsp cumin to liquid
toss the carrots in the liquid, salt and pepper to taste
