Carrot, Apple and Orange Salad with Ginger Dressing
3 medium carrots, peeled and thinly julienned
2 apples, cut into thin matchsticks
2 large oranges, peeled and sliced thinly
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. orange juice
2 Tbsp. chopped pistachio nuts
1 small piece root ginger
1 tsp chia seeds
chopped parsley or mint (whichever herbs you prefer)
salt and ground pepper
Peel and finely chop or grate the ginger.
Blend together the olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, ginger and season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
Toss the carrots and apples together, pour the dressing over and mix well.
Arrange on a plate the oranges and sprinkle lightly with chia seeds
Put the carrot-apple mixture over the oranges.
Sprinkle the salad with the pistachio nuts and chopped herbs.
It's better to have the ingredients julienned with the knife. A food processor or a mandolin might cause the apples to turn watery. You may julienne the apples 1 hour before serving time, toss them in lemon juice to prevent them from browning and they will look great while sitting in the fridge, waiting to be tossed and eaten.

2 cups carrot, peeled and chopped
1/2 yellow onion, sliced

Lightly grease a baking sheet and arrange the vegetables on the sheet in a single layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 25 to 35 minutes, and carefully stir the vegetables after 25 minutes.

Add lemon juice, dill, and parsley to the vegetables, and toss until everything is fully coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
