Carrot and Cilantro Slaw recipe

This quicky meal/side is so delicious I didn't take more pictures...(because I was busy eating it).

This is all you need:

1 pound carrots peeled and julienned. 
You can buy a julienne peeler on Amazon here. (I ♥ mine.)

1 large red onion sliced thinly
1 large bunch cilantro (more or less according to your taste)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
dashes of sea salt

Put carrots and onion in a large bowl. Mix other ingredients together-whisk a bit for good measure. Pour this over the carrot/onion mix, toss to coat. Tear the cilantro leaves and toss on the top. (I love cilantro, so I take the whole bunch, some people just prefer it as a garnish. Your choice.)


This is as close as I can get to my Mother in Law's carrot slaw, she is an AMAZING cook. I wish I had taken notes. 

You can use your dandy peeler to make these Thai Lettuce wraps too:

We ate these yesterday. Nom nom.
