Carrot Slaw

On a recent trip to France, my sister became addicted to the mustardy carrot slaw that is sold prepackaged in most grocery stores. While good, the store-bought slaw can be soupy and overly acidic. Instead, this version has a nice note of vinegar that doesn’t overtake the dish, and a little orange zest rounds things out. Also, this slaw travels well, so it’s great to take to picnics or potlucks.

Try serving it as a light side next to chicken, smoked ribs, or Sloppy Joes.

Instructions

  1. 1Fit a food processor with the grating blade. With the processor running, feed carrots down the tube to grate them. (Use the hopper to push carrots through.) Alternatively, grate carrots on large holes of a box grater. (You should have about 6 cups.)
  2. 2Whisk together remaining ingredients in a nonreactive mixing bowl until evenly blended. Add carrots, and, using clean hands, toss together until they are well coated. Season well with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. 3Let marinate at least 15 minutes and serve.
