Originating in France, where it’s called carottes râpées, this French Carrot Salad is one of my new favourite salads.
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tbsp lime juice
- 3/4 tsp honey
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp nigella seeds
Coarsely grate the carrots (I like to hold them flat against the grater to get the longest strips possible).
Finely slice the spring onion on the diagonal and toss with the carrot.
Mix together the olive oil, mustard, lime juice, honey and seasoning. Pour over the carrot mixture and toss together.
Sprinkle over the nigella seeds.
