Ingredients
  

  • 3 large carrots, grated
  • 1 stalk or bunch green onion or coriander (cilantro)
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, crushed
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds, roasted (hulled ones taste better)
  • pinch salt

Dressing

  • 1/2 tbsp lime or lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar (or sub more lime or lemon juice)
  • fresh chili, crushed or chili flakes (optional - I didn't use any)
  • pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • Grate your carrots. I whizzed mine in the food processor :D
  • Mix them with the roasted peanuts and sesame seeds.
  • Sprinkle with a little salt (so the carrots release their juices and flavors) and set aside.
  • Make the dressing and mix it well with the salad.
  • Serve :)

Notes

Make it in advance and refrigerate: the carrots don't get brown or soggy and all the flavors come together even more.
