Whats up doc? Not your same old shredded carrot salad

Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables. They add great colour, nutrition, crunch and are always available. Carrots are great in so many dishes you can always grate them into soups or tomato sauce for added veggies. Carrots are also filled with lots of vitamins and will help with keeping your eyes good and healthy for years to come. This carrot salad was part of my appetizer shmorgishborg at last weeks party. A great change from the same old shredded salads. 
Purple Carrot salad with red onion INGREDIENTS:
6 purple carrots - super thinly sliced (use mandolin or truffle shaver)
1/2 red onion - thinly sliced
handful parsley - chopped
toasted fennel seed - 2 tsp ground
toasted coriander - 2 tsp ground
cumin - 1 tsp ground
lemon juice - 1 lemon
honey - 1 tbs
olive oil - just a drizzle
PREP: throw everything in a bowl and enjoy - leave this overnight for best flavor.
TIP: For slicing the carrots super thin invest in a small handheld mandolin or if you're a serious Tomato Snob go for the larger one a truffle shaver also works super well for ultra fine slices.
