3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil   45 mL
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/2 lemon
8 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced   110 g
2 carrots, grated   200 g
40 g Parmesan cheese, shaved into curls    
2 tomatoes, sliced   240 g

2 cups alfalfa sprouts   70 g
1/4 cup Classic Vinaigrette (Recipe)   65 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    


  1. Make a lemon vinaigrette: in a small bowl, add the oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Beat well, using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the mushrooms and carrots, placing them in 2 separate bowls : Thinly slice the mushrooms; peel the carrots, then shred them using a large-holed grater. Add half of the lemon vinaigrette to each bowl, then toss to combine. Shave the Parmesan using a vegetable-peeler, then add the curls to the mushrooms. Arrange the dressed vegetables in 2 separate mounds onto each individual serving plate.
  3. Prepare the other vegetables placing them directly on the plates : Slice the tomatoes; wash then spin-dry the arugula and alfalfa sprouts. Pour the Classic Vinaigrette over the tomatoes, arugula, and alfalfa sprouts, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve.
