Borsch recipe), saw the huge potato and beet pieces in my version of her Borsch, she was a little shocked; I had corrupted the soup with my lazy chopping. But I just can't help it. There are so many more interesting things in the kitchen to do than chop things small.
This salad, or slaw, if you will, is a refreshing change from carrot rounds in a salad or carrot sticks dipped in ranch dressing. They are tossed with citrus and yogurt, and the longer you let them soak, the softer they become (but not too soft). If you like them crunchy, toss and serve right away. If you want the carrots a little more pliable, let them soak overnight before serving. Either way, it's a refreshing summer salad.
