Raw Carrot Salad

2.5 Vegetables

1 cup Carrot Ribbons
1/2 tsp. Extra Light Olive Oil
1/2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
3 minced Green Onions (white part only)
1/2 tsp Lemon, zest and juice
Salt-Free Garlic Powder (to taste)
Fresh Dill (to taste)

Use a vegetable peeler to make ribbons from carrot, rotating as you peel. Place all the carrot ribbons in your serving bowl. Note: one carrot makes about 1 1/2 cups of carrot ribbons. Save any leftover carrot pieces for a snack. In a small, lidded jar or container, combine the Extra light olive oil, apple cider vinegar, minced green onion, lemon zest and juice, and garlic powder. Cover with the lid and give it a good shake. Taste and adjust the flavor as needed. Then shake again and use half to 3/4 of it to dress the salad. Add in some fresh dill weed and use salad tongs to toss until well combined. Refrigerate up to a day before serving. Then add the remaining dressing, as needed, right before its time to eat.
