Here is an easy 'make ahead' side dish. Make when you have a heavier one dish main meal as an alternate to a vegetable or green salad.
- 3 1/2 cups grated carrots
- 1 bunch parsley finely chopped
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
- 1/2 tsp salt
Combine all and toss well. This can be made ahead and refrigerated, covered, until serving time. It keeps for 2 to 3 days. Alternately you can add cumin, chives or mint depending on the meal you are serving and how you want to compliment the flavours of the main dish.
