This carrot salad is everywhere in France. You can buy it by the kilo or prepackaged at boucheries and supermarkets. It’s on menus at both classic bistros and the kind of spots you walk into and think you’ve accidentally touched a portkey to Los Angeles. The first time I had it was from a train station kiosk during an especially long transfer at the Gare d'Avignon, en route to meet friends in Provence. I paired it with a croissant because, balance. It was fine (the croissant was better) but that’s part of the simple beauty of the Extremely French Carrot Salad or “carottes râpées” in French: It is at its best—and most cost-effective—when made at home.
This Eating Habit Is Making Your Brain Age Faster, Study Says
A new study finds that eating "Western diet" foods can slow the benefits of a Mediterranean Diet and make the brain age faster.Published in Alzheimer's&Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association on Jan. 7, 2021, the study looked at the effect of "Western diet" foods on older adults. These include fried foods, sweets, red and processed meats, full-fat dairy. Following a strict Mediterranean diet of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, olive oil, nuts, seeds, and legumes and limiting other kinds of foods is equal to the brain being 5.8 years younger, scientists found.
“Carottes râpées” translates to decidedly less chic sounding “grated carrots,” and that’s mostly what it should be: grated raw, lightly dressed with oil and lemon, a bit of cumin, and little else. If you want to riff, keep it uncomplicated: use a mess of colored carrots, replace lemon juice with lime, up the cumin, or add in a touch of ground coriander.
Making it is simple: In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 1 tsp. light honey, and ½ tsp. ground cumin. Season with salt. Add 1 lb. carrots, grated on the large holes of a box grater or in a, fitted with a grating attachment, and toss to coat, adjusting the dressing to taste. Stir in ½ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley or cilantro and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours before serving.

I made this salad many times throughout the process of writing my cookbook, and I’ve become especially taken with its ability to pair with pretty much anything else on the table. It’s on the book’s cover alongside Coq au Vermouth (p. 111), Salade Verte with Cornichon Vinaigrette (p. 210), and, maybe predictably, very good butter, bread, and wine. In fact, I’ve eaten it as a meal alone with very good butter, bread, and wine. I love it paired with the Cider Pork (p. 141). I eat forkfuls of it as bright, palate-cleansing breaks while eating the rich, cheese-heavy Croque Madame (p. 169) or the equally rich Raclette, or Cheese Dinner with Carbs (p. 171). I’ve eaten leftovers for lunch, standing fridge-side as a snack, and I’ve tucked it into tupperware and brought it to in Parc des Buttes Chaumont or for apéro on the Canal Saint-Martin.
And now that I know better, I pack it for every train ride to Provence.

It seems strange that there's only one day a year dedicated to celebrating moms—the women who taught us how to tie our shoes and blow our noses. They feed us, clothe us, and (when we're grown) share a drink with us to recall all the times they almost lost it while taking care of us. Mom, it's time to return the favor: with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make aMom, it's time to return the favor: with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make a grocery list three days out, prep the sides the day before, and set the table that morning.
