This is a salad that my Amma used to make for us all the time. It was simple, tasted delicious and she got us to help with grating. I make it often these days because of its simplicity and hence a perfect addition to the menu. Today at the farmers market, I found pink carrots. I thought they would be pink when grated, but to my surprise, the skin was pink while the interior was orange like a regular carrot. They were however super sweet and fresh. The farmer must have picked the produce early this morning to sell at the farmers market. For lunch, I made this salad as a part of our meal. It kind of leaves a clean and fresh taste in the mouth which I enjoy.
Carrots - 3 medium grated
Red Onions - 1/4 thinly sliced
Firm Tomato - 1 diced
Green Chillies - 1/2 thinly sliced
Cilantro - 1 tbsp minced
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
1. Grate the organic carrots with the skin and add it to a bowl. Add red onions, tomatoes, green chillies and cilantro.
2. Squeeze the lemon juice and give the salad a quick toss. Allow the salad to rest for 10 minutes. Just when you are ready to serve add some salt and serve. The salad will be remain crisp.
