Moroccan Shaved Carrot Salad

The holidays aren't even over and I'm already suffering from that gross feeling of 'over-indulgence'. I've basically been on the glutton wagon since Halloween: my birthday, Thanksgiving, our wedding, comfort food season, and now I'm looking at two more weeks of the same with Christmas, New Years, and our honeymoon (!) all on the horizon.

Time for a bit of freshness.

The beautiful thing about this salad (aside from the gorgeous colors) is that it's so quick and easy to make there's really no excuse not to make it!

And once you're a good boy or girl and finish your salad, you can go back to eating cookies guilt-free.


Moroccan Shaved Carrot Salad

  • 3 to 4 carrots, shaved thin with a vegetable peeler
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • 1 TB vinegar 
  • 1/2 TB dried mint
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Pomegranate seeds
Mix all ingredients (except pomegranate) together in a small bowl. Be sure to thoroughly coat carrots in liquid. 

Cover and 'marinate' in the fridge for at least 2 hours, until the carrots have begun to soften slightly. 

Garnish with pomegranate seeds (seriously- don't skip that!) and enjoy!
