2 pounds carrots, peeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick on a bias
1 pound radishes, sliced thin
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons water
2 small garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons chopped mint
- Steam the sliced carrots for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add to a medium bowl with the uncooked radish slices.
- Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
- Toss all together and serve at room temperature or chilled.
The radish slices add a nice crunch to the salad. Alternatively, you can roast the carrots as well by tossing in salt and olive oil at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cooked.
