Carrot "Noodle" Salad with Sweet Orange Asian Dressing
2 large carrots
1/2-1 tablespoon hempseed
1/2-1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves (optional)
handful or two of salad greens (optional)
1 orange, juiced
1/2 tablespoon agave
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 (generous) tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos/soy sauce/tamari
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1. Peel and shred the carrots. I usually just use the veggie peeler for this to obtain long, wide "noodles". You could also grate the carrots or cut them into thin matchsticks. Toss the carrots with the cilantro.
2. Whisk all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour this over the carrot mixture and toss well. You can allow this to marinate or serve as is. If you are opting for salad greens, arrange the carrot noodle mixture over a bed of greens.
