A kid-friendly slaw, full of sweet shredded carrots and tart bits of apple. If you’re making it ahead, add the mint just before serving. Easily doubles for a bigger crowd.
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
2 apples, diced (try Cortlands or Honeycrisps)
Juice of ½ lemon
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
Toss the carrots, apples and lemon juice together in a large bowl. Add the cider vinegar, salt and sugar and toss to combine. Add the parsley and mint, then taste and adjust seasoning.
