Spicy Carrot Salad

This is a lovely salad to make for a summer barbeque and because it retains it’s crunch, you can make it at the start of the week for 3-4 days of healthy lunches.

If you don’t have a julienne peeler you will find them in most large supermarkets or on Amazon. Alternatively you could grate the carrot instead.
