This is a very simple side dish that doesn’t really warrant a full recipe, but I thought I would share it anyway as it is a great little side dish that goes so well with Asian dishes, especially Thai curry (I have a recipe for that coming up soon). You wouldn’t usually think to put a salad with a curry, but this isn’t your normal lettuce salad, but instead it is packed full of carrots and flavour.

I haven’t added any spice to it, as just the lime juice and coriander (cilantro) packs enough flavour and if you are having it with curry, then there should be enough spice with your meal anyway, but feel free to add some. We had leftovers and I threw it together with some lettuce, cucumber and Asian spiced grilled chicken the next day to make an awesome salad.
Ingredients – Serves 4:
– 8 carrots
– 2 handfuls of fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped
– Juice of 1 lime (2 limes if the one you have is not very juicy)
– 1tbsp olive oil
– 2 tbsp sesame seeds
1) Use a julienne peeler (or just shred the carrots if you don’t have one) to peel the carrots and put in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Leave for 30 minutes before serving.
