Ingredients:Facebook-20150606-011728

  • Carrots (roughly 200 – 300 grams per person)
  • (optional) 1-2 handfuls of some kind of salad leaf
  • (optional) roasted sesame seeds

for the dressing:

  • 1 heaped tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 1,5 teaspoons of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of fish sauce (or to taste)
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • splash of milk (or water will do just fine)
  • (optional) chilli to taste
  • (optional) 1 clove of garlic, crushed

Preparation:

  • Heat up a small casserole or pan with some olive oil to make your dressing in
  • When the oil is hot, sweat of the chilies and the garlic for 4-5 minutes (if you choose to add them). Make sure they do not color!
  • Add all the other ingredients to the pan except for the milk
  • Warm the dressing through and get it to┬áthe right consistency by adding just enough milk. I prefer this dressing a little bit thicker so it sticks nicely to every bit of carrot and salad leaf
  • Take the ends of your carrots and peel them. Create long slivers of carrot by using your speed peeler
  • Put the slivers of carrot in a large mixing bowl together with the optional salad leaves and add the dressing
  • Mix everything together by using your hands, making sure everything is nicely covered in this super awesome dressing!
  • Move the salad on a plate and sprinkle over some toasted sesame seeds
  • ENJOY!
