Come home from a few weeks away and you’re stuck with the age old dilemma: What do I eat?
Fortunately I recently returned home to a 10 pound bag of carrots in my refrigerator, the result of an, ”Of course I want to split twenty pounds of carrots from your CSA!” conversation with a friend. (Just think of the carrot cardamom marmalade I am thinking of making.) Said friend made a carrot delivery while I was out of town and hence the creation of a winter salad that’s both sweet and gingery and colorful enough to brighten a gray day.
