This is a Giada De Laurentis recipe that I have been making for Shabbos lunch. It has great flavor. The sweet pears and carrots are a great contrast to the curry vinaigrette.

1-1/2 pound large carrots, trimmed and peeled (about 8 carrots)
2 firm pears (recommended: D’Anjou)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Using a vegetable peeler cut the carrots lengthwise into thin ribbons or slices. Quarter, core, and stem the pears. Using a knife, slice into very thin strips. Place the carrot and pear slices in a large bowl with the chopped parsley.

In a blender combine the white wine, curry powder, honey, salt, and pepper and blend to combine. With the machine running add the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the carrots and pears. Toss to combine and serve immediately.
