Chef Greg Marchand’s fresh innovative French fare has made him a household name in the Paris dining scene. His first cookbook, Frenchie, on shelves April 8th, is packed with seasonal dishes from his bistro and the stories behind them, as well as stunning photos that will earn it a place in your kitchen library for years to come. Chef Marchand’s simple roasted carrot salad combines bright colors with satisfying flavors and textures for a hearty vegetarian lunch or side dish.

This is a dish I could eat every day. Simple, quick, delicious, it combines the crunchiness and sweetness of carrots, the zing of orange and the meaty texture of avocado.
