Jamie Oliver’s Evolution Carrot Salad

From Jamie’s Food Revolution

Peel 4 or 5 large carrots and grate them into a bowl.  Pick the leaves off a few sprigs of fresh mint and cilantro and finely chop them.  You can also use fresh chives.  Add them to the bowl and toss with the carrots. Season with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Add 6 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and mix well.  Serve right away (or refrigerate for later), as is, or let it start evolving…

Toast a good handful of mixed seeds in a hot dry frying pan for a minute, then sprinkle them on your salad. Peel 2 or 3 small clementines and cut into nice thick slices. Either toss them into your salad, or lay the slices on a serving platter and pile the carrot salad on top.

And/or, crumble some feta or goat cheese over the top.

And my thought:  to the leftovers, if you want a light main dish, add a can of tuna, 2 Tablespoons of golden raisins, and a couple of spoonfuls of good mayo or plain yogurt.
