No-Fuss Sweet and Spicy Carrot Salad

When I saw this recipe in my feed reader, I knew it sounded like a great way to use up the rest of the big bag of carrots I had hanging out in the fridge. It was really easy and tasted great! I boiled my carrots and then used that water to thin out the sauce for the Spice-Crusted Tofu that I made as the main course.

Here’s what you need (for 2 huge carrot lovers, inspired by Cooking Weekends)

8 large carrots (peeled and sliced)

For the dressing:
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
coarse sea salt
pinch of chili powder
1 tsp maple syrup
some fresh parsley

Steam or cook the carrots until soft but still firm. Allow to cool a little bit and mix with the dressing. Serve on room temperature and enjoy!!
