The Best Carrot Salad

This is possibly the simplest, easiest salad to make, but is such a delight, serve it with simple dressed leaves alongside anything. Goes particularly well in a sandwich with hummus. I pretty much eat this with every meal.

Grate as many carrots as you like. One carrot per person is a good estimate for a side salad. Add some finely chopped garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and seasoning. Theres your basic salad. I usually add either spring onions or some finely chopped red onion. Toasted seeds are also a must, sunflower or pumpkin. A little bit of chilli is nice too. In this picture I added some finely sliced fennel too because it was in my veg.

Also, see this recipe in The Guardian for a japanese version
