We have a bunch of carrots lazing around in the fridge, and slaw sounds like the perfect way to use them up. It's a typically summer, picnicky dish, but using carrots seems to ease it into fall...
The classic carrot slaw we remember has raisins and a mayonnaise dressing, but when we went digging for recipes, we turned up a few more sophisticated options. The one above, from Gourmet, has fennel, sun-dried tomatoes, and an olive dressing. There's also one with figs, plus a few basic version with simple vinaigrettes.
