#19 - TJ's Salmon Burgers with Lemony Carrot Salad

Talk about a cheap and easy meal.  The fresh carrots from our CSA delivery are 10 times more flavor than your average grocery store variety.  All we did was dress these grated carrots up with a little bit of lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and it was as sweet and fresh as any good fruit salad.  Trader Joes Salmon Burgers are also a staple in our house.  Quick and healthy and Caitlyn ate almost a whole patty to herself last night!  Very pleased with this for a quick weeknight meal and looking forward to the leftover carrot salod today.  Also, for a fun twist, try adding the carrot salad directly to your burger for a nice crunchy condiment.

In medium bowl combine equal parts lemon juice and good quality olive oil (about 2 tablespoons each).  Add one clove of minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste and whisk well to incorporate.  Shred 4 medium to large carrots.  Toss with dressing.  Chill until ready to serve.
