Honey Strawberry Sandwich & Minted Carrot Salad

Honey in the morning, honey in the evening. Honey is a staple in my Sicilian kitchen.  I drizzled this light, delicately scented gift from the bees onto rustic breakfast sandwiches.

Assembly was a breeze – toasted crusty ciabatta bread + a layer of marscapone + strawberry slices + honey = sticky fingers and a delicious way to start the day.

For a simple salad to accompany pasta minted carrot salad was a perfect contrast. I put it together before I began to cook the pasta so that the dressing would wilt the carrots a bit. Here’s how I did it:

Minted Carrot Salad

I mixed together equal parts of fresh lemon juice, orange juice and olive oil, about a tablespoon of each, and a teaspoon of honey in a serving bowl.  I scrubbed a couple of carrots with a vegetable brush, cut them into thin slices and added them to the dressing along with the leaves from a couple of stems of mint that I had cut into fine ribbons, a bit of lemon zest, salt and pepper to the dressing.
