Servings 2 Side Salads



  • 3 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic crushed or minced fine
  • 1 ½ tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar


  • 3 large carrots or 4 small carrots
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds



  • Add all dressing ingredients to a small jar with a lid, and shake the dressing to combine.


  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel the skin off the carrots and then continue to peel the carrots into thin strips into a bowl. Peel until you reach the core of the carrots. Depending on the size of your carrots, you'll have differently sized carrot ribbons.
  • Add the dressing to the carrots, and toss to combine. Let the salad sit for about 5 minutes to let the pickle a bit in the dressing.
  • Top with slices of scallion and sesame seeds.


If you'd prefer, you can grate the carrots on a box grater instead of ribboning them with a peeler.
