Shaved Carrot and Zucchini Salad

This pretty, healthy and delicious salad can be made using a mandoline or Y-shaped vegetable peeler. Be careful when using a mandoline! I learned this lesson the hard way.

serves 6 ( 2 points +)

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 2 c. thinly shaved carrot
  • 2 c. thinly shaved zucchini
  • 1/4 c. thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 c. fresh, flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Add carrot, zucchini and onion; toss. Sprinkle with parsley, salt and pepper.
