  • 6 whole colorful carrots purchased from Trader Joes
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds toasted
  • 3 scallions finely sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped

for the dressing:


  • Peel and finely slice carrots, using a mandoline slicer. Place into a large bowl. Add in almonds, scallions, and parsley. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together dijon mustard, vinegar, sugar, oil, and salt & pepper.  Pour over salad ingredients and toss to coat. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours. 
  • If you'd like to make this in advance and store chilled for longer than 3 hours, omit the almonds and then toss once ready to serve.
