  • 1- pound (455 g) carrots, trimmed and peeled, shredded
  • 1 fresh large heavy lemon, halved, pitted
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons (2 tablespoons to 60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place grated carrots in a bowl. Drizzle with about half a lemon’s worth of lemon juice and about half of the smaller amount of the oil. Toss, season with salt and pepper and adjust seasoning and add more lemon juice and/or oil, if desired.

  2. Salad is ready to serve or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Serve at room temperature or slightly cool.



Variations: You can try various vinegars, as mentioned, and if you like, add a little chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or even some snipped chives or chopped scallion greens. A pinch of ground cumin accents the carrots beautifully.
