RECIPE: Carrot Pulp Salad or Dip

I've been juicing a lot lately, and looking for ways to use juicer pulp.  I've actually read that it's healthier to toss the juice and use the pulp! 

Here's something I made last weekend that was super easy and got rave reviews.  It was dense enough to use as a dip, and I had the leftovers as a side salad the next day.

Carrot Pulp Salad or Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 cups carrot pulp from juicing peeled carrots
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, from one lemon
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1teaspoon honey, to taste
  • Heaping 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 T. finely minced red onion

Instructions

  1. In a salad bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey, vegetable oil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the carrots, fresh parsley and red onion and toss well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Notes: Depending on the sweetness of the carrots, you may want to add more or less honey. Also, if you make this salad ahead of time, be sure to check the seasoning again before serving as the flavors tend to mellow.
