French Carrot Salad

The food processor was the fastest and easiest way to shred carrots for this recipe. We also liked the meatier shreds it produces, though a box grater works fine, too. We kept this salad simple, but versions with toasted nuts or chopped dried fruit also were delicious. No tarragon? Use 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme instead.




Don’t use old bagged carrots. This salad is all about the earthy, sweet carrot flavor.

Pretty good
I did not enjoy shredding so many carrots, but it tasted so good. I would definitely make this again. Very light. A perfect summer salad. I did not put 1/8 tsp of cayenne but just a pinch as my kid wont eat it if its too hot.

I've made this several times and everyone likes it, even the kids! My husband misses this salad from his time in France and he says it's perfect!
