Cooking Light APRIL 2009

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 cheese slices and about 1 cup salad)


  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced spring onion
  • 1 (8-ounce) bunch radishes with tops
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (4-ounce) package goat cheese, cut into 8 slices


1. Shave carrots into ribbons with a vegetable peeler to measure 2 cups. Combine carrots and onion in a large bowl.
