Orange rind gives carrots a sweet, citrusy flavor, but the white pith has a bitter flavor, so be sure to avoid it when you're zesting.
Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add carrot; cook for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well. Place carrot, parsley, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently.
For baby: Omit black pepper. Cut the carrot slices into bite-sized pieces. Serve spoonfuls in a small bowl or on a rimmed plate.
