I’ve shared a few of my 5-minute side dishes in the past – dishes that require no cooking, come together in about 5 minutes with minimal ingredients you probably have on hand. This carrot slaw is another one, and really is quite special.

The flavors in this slaw are so perfect together. A light dressing, fresh herbs, crunchy carrots. Serve it alongside grilled fish, lamb, pork chops or steak. It’s just a great dish to carry through late summer as we all make the most of these fleeting, warm evenings.

    I made this yesterday to go with hamburgers and it was really delicious! What did you use to grate your carrots, the thickness looks really nice.

  2. Angela says:

    I frequently make our French carrot salad year round which is typically a lemon or a Dijon vinaigrette- Im definitely going to mix it up and try Chris’s version!

    I recently went vegan. Can you share which veganaise brand you like?
    Thank you!
