This easy, no-added-fat summer salad plays the nutty flavor of toasted sunflower seeds against sweet carrots and fresh herbs. Serve it right away or make it the day before.
Using a mortar and pestle or the side of a knife, crush garlic with salt until a thick paste forms. Place garlic paste in your serving bowl. Add vinegar and lemon juice and let stand for at least 10 minutes, letting the garlic macerate.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium-low heat, toast sunflower seeds until nicely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside.
Add carrots and herbs to the garlic mixture. Add sunflower seeds and toss. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
