Sesame Carrot Salad

This recipe is from Everyday Food. With the price of groceries constantly growing, I 've been trying to find cheap side dishes to make. Organic carrots are usually the same price, or only pennies more, than regular carrots which make this an great dish to make that is affordable yet still organic.

Sesame Carrot Salad
5-6 carrots peeled, then sliced into ribbons with a veggie peeler
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1-2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 piece (1 inch) finely chopped ginger

Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.

I served this dish at room temperature the first time I made it, but I think I liked it even better refrigerated the next day for lunch.
