In France, this kind of salad is known as «salade composée», because the ingredients are artfully composed, rather than randomly tossed together.

Ingredients

2 carrots, grated 200 g
2 cucumbers, medium size, cut into sticks 500 g
38 mL Classic Vinaigrette 2 1/2 tbsp
2 tomatoes, sliced 240 g
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil 20 mL
40 g Parmesan cheese, shaved into curls
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the carrots and cucumber, placing them in 2 separate bowls : Cut the cucumbers into sticks, then put them in a colander, sprinkle with salt then let drain for about 15 min. Rinse the cucumber sticks, drain and pat dry. Peel the carrots, then shred them using a large-holed grater. Add half of the Classic Vinaigrette to each bowl, then toss to combine. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the tomatoes placing them directly on the plates : Slice the tomatoes; pour the virgin olive oil over the tomatoes, then season with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the dressed carrots and cucumbers in 2 separate mounds onto each individual serving plate.
  4. Shave the Parmesan using a vegetable-peeler, then sprinkle the curls over the salad. Serve.
