|Fresh carrots ready for cooking|
An invitation to a friend’s “Falafal-fest” made me think about what dish I could add- falafal, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and the like and needing something both easy and that I could find the ingredients to actually make, I settled on a carrot salad. Fresh carrots are bountiful this time of year. Besides, Sidney loves all things carrots and bringing a carrot dish would guarantee that there would be at least one dish that my sporadically finicky toddler would eat.
I couldn’t find a recipe that actually excited me after perusing a variety of options I set about creating my own dish based on what looked and tasted right. The verdict? From Sidney, who ate two servings before it even left the house, “So good. More carrots in a bowl please.” (For some reason carrots on a plate a simply not acceptable to him). I think my mostly empty bowl I brought home indicates that this dish was a success.
