Surprisingly, this week's French Fridays with Dorie challenge isn't a pasta dish - it's a salad! Dorie's recipe calls for cucumbers, but I can't eat them, so I substituted shredded carrots for them. The other change we made was to use walnut oil in place of pistachio oil. We had plenty of fresh mint in our garden to toss in. You can find Dorie's original recipe here.
This is a light, refreshing salad that's quick to put together. It makes a mayonnaise-free alternative to coleslaw. We served it with Poached Sole topped with Crab and Madagascar Red Rice.
