Carrot or Celery Salad
MAKES: 4 servings
TIME: 20 minutes
This is so easy it barely qualifies as a salad, yet celery and carrots are so readily overlooked, and this is so good. Consider using this ultra-basic lemon juiceвЂ“olive oil dressingвЂ”just as you would a vinaigretteвЂ”with lightly steamed and cooled broccoli, cauliflower, and other vegetables too. ItвЂ™ll keep well, refrigerated, for up to a day after you make it, though itвЂ™s best served not-too-cold.
4 medium carrots or 6 medium celery stalks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, or to taste
01 To prepare the carrots, trim, peel, and cut into coins. To prepare the celery, trim the ends and вЂњstringвЂќ it; then chop it into bite-sized pieces.
02 Toss in a bowl with the salt and pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil. Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve.
