Impromptu Carrot Salad

This impromptu carrot salad was a side for our pad see ew, so we could stretch it out a bit. I was trying to emulate this French grated carrot salad (except we only had one carrot) and/or the little salads you get at sushi restaurants. Basically I just grated a carrot, threw in some minced lettuce to add a little more substance, and also included a minced tomato. The dressing, which went perfectly with it, was orange miso. (Store-bought, but I see a lot of recipes for orange miso when I google it… Might have to try one!)

The salad served its purposely exactly as planned: It was a healthy, cool, refreshing little side that expanded the meal and complemented the spicy pad see ew. In fact, with this salad to cool your tongue between bites, you could make the pad see ew even spicier than usual.
