Slaw Part 1- Cucumber Carrot Salad

I had plans of making traditional slaw in honor of Memorial Day weekend, but was given some leftover carrots and cucumber so I decided to make both.   I also wanted to make use of my new spiralizer only to find it is very difficult to spiralize a carrot so I used my “carrot pencil sharpener” I bought in Europe last summer.  

This is also part of a marathon post of four different recipes all using up similar ingredients.  Most of the recipes only called for 1T of cilantro, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 inch piece of ginger.  This was my chance to create different meals using up ALL of my leftovers.

1C carrots, shredded or spiralized (about 2)

1tsp minced ginger

1tsp sriracha or hot sauce

1tsp soy sauce

1Tblsp lemon juice

salt to taste

I like the 1:1:1 ratio of this recipe.  I also like that there are no other directions than to combine all the ingredients and let it rest so all the flavors settle in the veggies.  I drained some of the cucumber juices after resting.
