A simple, delicious way to get your vitamin A!

Serves 6

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1 small garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped

salt to taste

2 cups fresh carrot strips, matchstick size

In medium-sized mixing bowl combine oil, vinegar and garlic. Stir briskly with fork till thickened, then salt to taste. Add carrot strips; toss to coat, then set at room temperature till ready to use, stirring occasionally.

Notes: Serve Marinated Carrot Strips in place of salad, with potato or rice dishes.

To make carrot strips: Peel carrot; cut off ends. Cut whole carrot crosswise into 1&1/2 inch lengths. Now, keeping each piece on its side, use a sharp, broad, sturdy knife to cut each piece lengthwise into slabs 1/8 inch thick. Stack 2-3 slabs at a time on top of one another, then slice into 1/8 inch wide strips, resembling matchsticks.
