Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt, or more to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add a generous amount of salt to the water. Prepare an ice bath to use for the carrots after they've cooked.
  2. Place the sliced carrots in the boiling water for about 8 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Scoop them out of the water with a slotted spoon and place them in the prepared ice bath.
  3. Allow carrots to dry for 5 minutes, and them toss them with the tomato paste.
  4. Next, prepare the salad dressing by whisking together the oil, vinegar, salt, cumin, paprika, sugar, pepper, and garlic. Pour over the carrots and mix until all the carrots are coated with the tomato paste and salad dressing.
