Carottes Râpées or Grated Carrot Salad

"Very popular in France- you'll find it on any bistro menu. A simple salad of grated carrots and parsley, with a few other ingredients. The most important thing is the size of the carrots- they must be grated very thin. This salad is best with carrots alone. I would recommend storing the dressing and the salad separately until time to eat. You may want to add more oil or lemon, etc. But do not overdress. It should glisten, but not be swimming in dressing."

    As @gavin.post mentioned, this is very popular in France. Every time we visit family there, it's one of the first things on my shopping list. :) Really easy dish to make & it is quite refreshing--perfect for summer, or whenever, really. Love it. Great recipe--really lovely flavor. Thank you!
