Greg downloaded several weeks’ worth of photos yesterday and looked through them.
“Those carrot salad photos came out really well,” he said. This was his not-so-subtle way of asking me to blog about the carrot salad.
“Nevermind how it tasted,” I said. “I have to blog about it because the pictures are pretty.”
Incidentally, are you feeling a little sorry for us that we get excited about photos of carrots? We used to get excited about sky-diving and trips to Spain. Now, carrot salad.
I have been meaning to tell you about this carrot salad because it’s fantastic, such an unexpected combination of flavors. It calls for a North African chile paste called harissa. I haven’t been able to find it in any store, so I’ve been using Thai chile sauce.
The one time-consuming part of this is preparing the carrots, but it’s better than standing over a hot stove or oven on a summer day.
And now for our lovely carrot photo by Greg:
