You Can Zest Your Carrots

I always like the idea of double duty or just the
simple idea of using something in a different way than intended.

So, as I was shredding carrots the other day, I wondered...
what if I tried it with a zester...  so I took the peeled carrot
and took the zester (typically for getting citrus zest) and zested
in length-wise. Then I had another ah-ha moment and realized that's
what Sangkee Asian Bistro in Wynnewood does with their carrots.
They enjoy garnishing their dishes with a zested carrot nest.
