shaved carrots with avocado pesto
 

blagh, this weather's got me feeling blagh. because one day it's warm/sunny + the next it's cold/overcast. it's confusing + frankly I don't know what to eat on these day either.

ha! I know, poor me. but I'm flipping between craving grilled cheese + kale salads over here. 

this carrot salad though, it's kind of like my middle ground. it's fresh with the pesto + carrots, but indulgent with tons of feta too. it's the kind of food I want to eat now + I thought you'd like it too.

and it's simple. just shaved carrots, an avocado (+ parsley) pesto + the feta. toss it all together + enjoy!

shaved carrots with avocado pesto

  • 7 small/medium carrots, peeled
  • 2 bunches parsley (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 7 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
  1. Shave the carrots using a vegetable peeler (or spiralizer!) Place the carrot shavings in a bowl of ice water. Set aside.
  2. Combine the parsley, avocado, garlic, walnuts, vinegar + olive oil in a food processor until it turns into a pesto consistency. Taste for seasoning, adding salt if needed. Drain the carrots.
  3. To serve combine the carrots with the pesto + feta crumbles. Serve with more parsley for garnish.
