Recipe: Carrot & Ginger Salad

Standard

This is inspired by a recipe on one of Jamie Oliver’s quick-cook shows – I’m not sure if it was 30 minutes or 15 minutes. Either way, this is lightening quick to make and a great addition to a curry or chinese meal. The ginger and lemon combine to add an almost lemon-sherbet background and then the mint lifts it into cooling territory. I can recommend it as a side dish with a dal or pulse-based stew. It’s well worth having in your repertoire.

5cm length of fresh ginger, peeled
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Grate the carrots and the ginger into a bowl.
Stir in the lemon juice, coriander and mint.
Season with salt and mix thoroughly.
Leave to stand for 10-15 minutes for the flavours to mix.
Stir again and serve.

    • It’s really nice. I know I only put up recipes that I think taste nice, but the flavour to effort ratio on this one is really good!
