Use a julienne peeler, a Japanese mandoline, or get really serious about your knife skills to julienne these carrots. Add them to a bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix until everything is coated. This salad will last a day or two if you don’t eat it up immediately.
This is one of my favourite summer recipes, it’s light and refreshing. I normally do it with just lemon juice and a pinch of salt (the french way) which would decrease the number of calories, but it’s ultimately up to you as both ways are delicious! Makes about 4 side servings, each with 101 calories; 7g total fat (1.0 g sat, 0.0g trans); 0mg cholesterol; 62mg sodium; 2.6g dietary fiber;
1 cup beluga lentils, rinsed and picked over (608)
1 small onion, cut in half (28)
2 garlic cloves, slightly crushed (9)
1 bay leaf (6)
Salt to taste (0)
1 cup bulgur (479)
4 scallions, thinly sliced (19)
4 to 6 radishes, thinly sliced (3)
1 cup finely chopped parsley (22)
2 to 4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint (5)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (20)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds, lightly toasted and ground (8)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (955)
Combine the lentils, onion, garlic and bay leaf in a saucepan, and add 2 to 3 cups water, enough to cover by an inch or two. Bring to a gentle boil, add salt to taste, reduce the heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes until tender but intact. Remove from the heat. Remove and discard the onion, garlic cloves and bay leaf. Drain. Meanwhile, place the bulgur in a medium bowl, and add salt to taste. Cover with 2 cups hot or boiling water, and allow to sit for 20 to 25 minutes until most of the water is absorbed. Drain through a strainer and squeeze out the water. Combine the lentils, bulgur, scallions, radishes, parsley and mint in a large bowl or salad bowl. Whisk together the lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper to taste, and the olive oil. Toss with the salad, and serve.
