Munching 9 to 5 - Carrot and cheese salad

No it's not a job as a taste tester, as awesomely appealing as that sounds.

The next offering in the War on Terrible Food aka BYO work lunch series.

This salad has had a couple of incarnations and can be used as an indicator of how our eating has changed over the years. When I was at school the major ingredient to this was a jar of mayonnaise, these days it gets a light dressing of olive oil and lemon juice.
If I'm honest the tasty model below only got a drizzle of olive oil, no lemon or salt and pepper, and it was just as yum.

Carrot and Cheese Grateness
Serves 1

  • 2 medium carrots grated
  • 50 grams grated cheese
  • 1 fun size box (40g) sultanas
  • black and white sesame seeds
  • Olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 small lemon
  • Add carrot, cheese, and sultanas to a bowl.
  • Mix through a drizzle of oil and the lemon juice.
  • Top with a sprinkle of seeds and run out the door to work.
Making it the night before will let the sultanas soak up the dressing and the carrots soften. You can also experiment with any seeds that take your fancy, lineseed, chia, pumpkin seeds.
