Posh Pickled Carrot Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

In this salad, carrots are tossed with balsamic vinegar, shallots, parsley and salt and pepper - it's that simple! The balsamic lightly pickles the carrot, making it an excellent side dish and also a great accompaniment to cold cuts of meat.


  • 2 large carrots
  • 200ml good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 2 shallots
  • Salt and pepper


1. Finely grate the carrots and thinly slice the shallots. Toss the carrots, balsamic, parsley, shallots and a good pinch of salt and pepper together. Leave to sit for 10 minutes then serve.

For a little extra flavour, you could add some extra-virgin olive oil to the salad - it will be more like a salad, and it will taste a little richer. Recipe serves 2-4.
