Healthy Summer Salad

From the famed Moosewood cookbook, this vegetarian recipe is incredibly easy and healthful. While I adhered to the recipe pretty closely, I think tossing in additional veggies or legumes, such tomatoes or white beans, might work really well too.  

Ingredients:
Bunch of parsley
3 cups shredded carrots
Clove of garlic (minced)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
Sea salt
Pepper

Chop the parsley, and combine it with the rest of the ingredients.  Voila!  This dish is amazing on its lonesome or as a refreshing accompaniment to your favorite garden burger.  Parsley is excellent for digestion.  The salad keeps well in the fridge and can be enjoyed for 3-4 days.  Given the lightning-quick prep time, it's also a perfect option to bring to your 4th of July cookouts.
