This easy salad is like a cross between a slaw and a pickle. It makes a nice, simple snack or side dish, but it’s also great in a sandwich or taco or on a burger. This is a versatile recipe – substitute lemon juice and zest for the lime or use vinegar. Also, you can use parsley or cilantro instead of mint.

Juice of one lime and grated zest of half a lime

½ cup chopped fresh mint leaves
⅓ cup roasted sunflower seeds or peanuts (optional)
½ tsp salt
- Grate the carrots on the large holes of a box grater
- Stir in the lime juice and zest, honey, salt, mint, and peanuts. Taste the salad. Do you think it needs more lime? Mint? Honey? Salt? If so, add it, and taste again.
