This recipe calls for julienned carrots, so a mandolin is, I won’t say a neccessity, but it certainly makes the job a lot easier. You can pick one up from Amazon .

We use a granulated sweetener with the same weight and sweetness as sugar. This means it’s easy to substitute for the real stuff if you want!

There are lots of high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

  1. Hi! I love this recipe but my husband wasn’t keen on the fish sauce or coriander (picky)! Could you suggest an alternative as he enjoyed the actual salad and would like to keep it on the rota xx
