Standing in front of the vegetable drawers in my refrigerator devoid of any leafy greens, I spotted a fresh big bunch of carrots and some fennel bulbs with the greens still attached. Along with a bunch of parsley, the veggies looked promising.
As I contemplated using a grater for the carrots and fennel risking the skin on my fingers, I decided to try the food processor with the grater disk. Even though I have had this type of machine in my kitchen for decades, it is still sort of an occasional thrill to grate a whole bunch of carrots in seconds.
This salad is very light with a good mix of flavors.
