So I had a look through my Nigella books and decided on a recipe which I’ve looked at a few times but never quite got round to. It’s in ‘Forever Summer’ and is the ‘Rainbow Room’s Carrot and Peanut Salad’.
Nigella’s carrots are cut much more roughly, but I only have a fine microplane grater, so it had to do. I don’t normally have peanuts in the house (because I will just eat them!) but I bought some of Tesco’s value peanuts and they were very good and not very expensive. Other than that, it’s just a bit of dressing, I used the last of my Fig vinegar that I got on holiday last June, the fruity flavour worked really well with this salad, which I ate for my lunch. You only need a couple of drops of oil as the oiliness of the peanuts works really well with the vinegar. Luckily for everyone, Nigella has posted this recipe on her website HERE.
