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. 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.
Sorry for the short post, but I am currently in London starting the next set of HHH book photoshoots. By the end of this week, we will only have 1 day of shooting left, which will be at the start of June and then it is all done. Eeeee. Exciting! Thanks to everyone that has stuck around the blog whilst I have been a bit absent. It will be back to normal soon, I promise.
