Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk lemon juice, oil, chives, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

  • Cut carrots into long thin strands, then slice the long strands into shorter strands to make them easier to serve (see Tip).

  • Add the carrot strands to the large bowl with the dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Add mint before serving.


Tip: If you don't have a spiralizer, you can also use a julienne vegetable peeler to create the carrot strands.
