Summer is almost over but that doesn’t mean we cannot eat bright and light meals anymore. As much as I love fall and winter’s rich and heavy meals I still like to have summery meals. This carrot cucumber slaw is perfect for those days when you want something light and fresh.
2 large carrots
2 Persian cucumbers
3 green onions sliced thinly
1/2 a red pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 handful cilantro finely chopped
juice from 1/2 a lemon
salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
– Mix all dressing ingredients and set aside.
– Cut the carrots, cucumber and red pepper into strips and mix with the dressing.
– After adding the dressing to the veggies, let stand for at least 30 minutes before serving. The longer they sit the better the flavor.
– Serve with any protein of your choice. I served mine with grilled salmon and a Caprese salad.
