Culture & Cuisine | Les Carottes Rapées // Grated Carrot Salad Recipe Culture & Cuisine

Les Carottes Rapées, or loosely translated, Grated Carrot Salad, is a popular item in France. Lunch or l’apéro (or more correctly, l’apéritif) with my family in Paris almost always includes this item – it’s light and simple to prepare. Plus, it’s delicious! A lot of the foods that we eat in France are not easily available here in the US so M and I often...
