NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped dates
Directions
  • Thinly slice the carrots into ribbons using a vegetable peeler or mandolin, including any remaining "stubs" of carrot. Soak in ice water until the ribbons firm up and curl, about 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

  • Whisk together the cilantro, olive oil, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the lime juice in a medium bowl. Add the carrots along with the feta cheese, almonds and dates, and toss until evenly combined. Serve immediately, or let the salad marinate a bit before serving.
