Shredded carrot salad with dill, feta and whole mustard seeds with lemony dressing.



  • ½ clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons best quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups shredded peeled carrots
  • 1 cup roughly chopped parsley, preferably curley
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Mash garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle. Toast mustard seeds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, swirling the pan occasionally, until the seeds are fragrant and start to brown and crackle, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the seeds to the mortar and pestle (don’t mash) and stir in lemon juice, Dijon and honey with a whisk or fork. Add olive oil and whisk or stir to combine.
  2. Combine carrots, parsley and dill in a large bowl. Drizzle with the dressing. Toss to combine. Transfer to a platter or serving dish and serve sprinkled with feta.
