This is a great, healthy Asian salad recipe that helps use up all those greens from summer carrot yields.
Remove greens from carrots and then remove and discard as much of the stems as possible, keeping only the leaves. Chop leaves to about 1/2 inch. Reserve carrots for another use.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; parboil greens for 2 minutes then strain and shock in ice water. Drain and squeeze dry. Place in a new bowl of cold water and refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight, changing water 1 to 2 times during the process to help eliminate extra bitter flavor. Drain and squeeze again.
Mix sesame seeds, vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and sugar together in a medium bowl. Toss in carrot greens and almonds and mix well.
Cover greens and refrigerate to marinate at least 1 hour before serving.
