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
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.
