Something Shredded and Something Cool

The thermometer rises and I feel shredded. 94 degrees, no thank you.  Eating anything at all in hot weather, besides ice cream, may seem remote, like a vague mirage on the horizon. “Oh nutrition! What’s that? Let’s go to Sebastian Joe’s or Dairy Queen and suck down those ever satisfying fats and carbs.”  Whoa, doggies.  Now that I have that out in the open, I’ll reroute my thoughts to something healthy. Here’s a no-cooking-with-heat alternative recipe from Sabina.  This is a refreshing and light carrot salad.  Goes with anything grilled, if you feel like cooking.

Carrot salad ingredients:

2 lbs of (1 kilo) carrots

2 tablespoons honey

1 piece of fresh ginger, size of your thumb

Dried mint

Lemon

Olive oil

Directions:

Shred carrots.

Make a dressing of honey, lemon juice, olive oil and mint.

Chop ginger finely and add to the dressing.

Mix together, let sit in fridge for couple of hours.

Stay cool!
