Asian Carrot Slaw

If you're like me you try to find something healthy to snack on mid-morning and then again mid-afternoon. But the stuff hanging out around the office kitchen is NOT healthy (Chex mix, Reese's Pieces, leftover donuts). And another baggie of celery or carrot sticks is as boring as it comes.

But with a little preparation and a little inspiration, you can have a tasty pick-me-up like this one...

Asian Carrot Slaw
Makes four servings.

3/4 pound carrots, peeled and shaved with a vegetable peeler
4 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon lime zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Coarse salt and ground pepper

In a bowl, combine carrots, scallions, vinegar, oil, sesame seeds, and lime zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.
