Carrot Salad using the Microplane Spiral Cutter

I enjoyed using the Microplane Spiral Cutter to quickly cut the carrots before tossing it with the below ingredients and enjoying it as a side dish. Before using the Microplane Spiral Cutter remove the plastic from the blades and wash the unit. This cutter is similar to a pencil sharpener, and it is fun to use. We can use this cutter with vegetables such as carrots and radishes that can be added to stir fries, pickles and other dishes. We can cut larger vegetables such as zucchini and cucumber with the larger hole.
For the salad I used...
2 carrots peeled
2 tbsp chopped red onion
1 tsp chopped mint leaves fresh or dry
1/4 of a lemon juiced to taste
1/4 tsp salt to taste
Using the smaller hole of the cutter turn or "sharpen" the carrots with the larger side of the carrot going in first. 
Toss all the ingredients well so everything is coated. This carrot salad can be served as a side dish with rice and curries or biryani.

  9. This looks like the type of salad my 3 year old would eat. Carrots are pretty much the only vegetable she'll consistently like.
