  • 4 large carrots orange or multicolored
  • 1 bulb fennel stalks and fronds removed
  • 1/4 cup pistachios chopped
  • Fennel fronds for serving

For the dressing:


  • Prepare the carrots by slicing off their ends and peeling off the outer layer. Then, use a vegetable peeler to create thin shavings. Use the same method to create thin shavings of the fennel by peeling its bulb. 
  • Combine the shavings and pistachios in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the veggies and nuts. Mix until well coated. Serve with fennel fronds on top. 
  • Enjoy chilled or at room temperature! 


This is a great side dish to fish or another lean protein or as part of a holiday meal.
