This was supposed to be our vegetable side dish last night, but it wasn't quite ready when the pizza came out, and we were so enamored by the pizza that we decided to just eat all of it and not eat any vegetables at all. So I just finished it up last night and threw it in the fridge. Which brings us to today, when we will eat it with dinner.
This is a pretty simple recipe to make, and can be served either as a side, alone, or on a bed of lettuce as a more substantial salad. To make it, boil water and cook the carrots for a short amount of time, so that they are somewhat soft but not completely cooked through. Halt the cooking by running them in cool water, and then grate them into a bowl. In a separate bowl, you make a sauce of yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Then you just gently mix the sauce with the carrots and serve.
Easy, tasty, etc.
