First Slaw of the Season

As a person who works in Manhattan, St. Patrick’s Day may very well be my absolute least-favorite holiday. As a counter-measure against thousands of underage drunken hooligans, we deployed our first slaw of spring, sporting the traditional Irish colors: orange white and green.

The carrots were shredded up in the food processor, mixed with chopped leeks and currants, then dressed with lemon juice, a little vinegar, a spoonful of nayonaise, and salt and pepper.
