Seeking a fresh recipe for spring? Try our julienned carrot salad with raisins, topped with an easy homemade lemon aioli that can be made in just minutes.
1tablespoonfresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepperto taste
5tablespoonsneutral-flavored oil(like sunflower, grapeseed, or canola)
Peel the carrots and then julienne them into long, thin noodles using a julienne peeler. Use a knife to cut the noodles into 3-inch-long pieces.
Peel the garlic and pound in a mortar and pestle until smashed, but not quite so much that you have formed a paste.
Place the garlic, egg yolks, fresh lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl, and whisk to combine. Whisk well while drizzling in the oil for about 30 seconds until you get a pale yellow aioli. Strain through a mesh sieve.
In a large bowl, combine the salad ingredients. Pour the dressing over the carrots and raisins, and mix well.
