Summer Squash and Carrot Salad

This tasty grated salad will satisfy on a hot summer’s day. It makes a perfect light lunch or accompaniment to an easy dinner off the grill. Any good mustard will suffice and feel free to play with other oils and vinegars for a variation.

Carrot and Summer Squash Salad
serves 2

1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated squash
1/4 cup toasted pistachios, chopped
1 tsp mustard
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 Tbs grapeseed oil
1 tsp honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Whisk together mustard, vinegar, honey and oil to make your vinaigrette- a food processor works really well here to emulsify the oil. Toss carrots, squash and pistachios with dressing and season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with more toasted pistachios.
