Japanese Shredded Carrot Salad

This is a great way to eat carrots: the process of shredding brings out their sweet flavor, vibrant color, and changes their often-woody texture. This was really good with lunch the next day too.

Shred 3 carrots in food processor (use the cheese grating disc). Add shredded carrots to salad bowl.

Add 1/4 C thinly sliced napa cabbage and 1/4 C chopped walnuts.

Prepare dressing and drizzle over carrots, cabbage and walnuts:
2 TB Japanese sweet rice wine "mirin"
3 TB Japanese rice vinegar "komezu"

1 tea soy sauce

Adapted from this great book on Japanese cooking and ingredients
