  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Colovito vinegar (no substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml). salt
  • Peel and slice carrots on an angle about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Put carrots in water and boil until just crunchy--don't overcook carrots.
  • Drain water.
  • Add olive oil, garlic and all other ingredients in mixing bowl.
  • Toss with cooked carrots.
  • Adjust seasoning to taste.
Being full blooded Italian, we don't measure anything. A little of this, a little of that. The most important thing is to use the right ingrediants and don't substitute. You can't use garlic powder to replace a garlic clove. The aroma is incredible and the taste is even better. Happy cooking.
