This carrot slaw recipe came from the French grandmother of one of Bill's friends. It tastes great with fried seafood, as well as barbecue. When Bill pairs it with soft-shell crabs, he also makes another slaw with purple cabbage. The colors on the plate are bright and beautiful.

This was wonderful! It very lemony without being tart, and it's the perfect side dish on a hot day. I love it!
