This dish was in my most recent Bon Appetit magazine and I was very excited to try it. Doing a bar-b-q picnic dinner recently gave me the perfect opportunity. It was such a great (healthy) alternative to a heavy cole slaw that you would find accompanying a typical bar-b-q meal. I really liked how it turned out, and will definitely make it again in the future!
12 ounces carrots (they suggested using colors, but I could only find trusty old orange) peeled and julienned
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 TBSP fresh lime juice (I forgot to grab a lime, so I just used lemon juice)
1/3 tsp kosher salt, please some additional to season
2 jalapenos, stemmed, seasoned and minced
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro
3/4 tsp ground coriander
Pinch of black pepper to taste
Julienne the carrots (my mandolin wasn’t working, so I just roughly julienned the carrots by hand and they weren’t as consistent or pretty as I would’ve liked).
Toss the carrots, oil, lime juice, salt, pepper and jalapenos in a large bowl. Let marinade for about 15 minutes.
Add the cilantro and coriander and toss to incorporate evenly. Season to taste.
Sooo yummy and pretty!!
