Simply yummy carrot salad

3 Comments


So the big bag of organic carrots was on sale at Costco. You bought it…and now you are desperately trying to find ways to use the carrots.

After baking vegan carrot cake (see recipe under https://ourfunstuff.wordpress.com/2013/11/24/vegan-carrot-cake/), eating lots of carrots with the lemony bean dip (see recipe under https://ourfunstuff.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/lemony-bean-dip/), and making curried carrot soup (see recipe under https://ourfunstuff.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/curried-carrot-soup/)…you still have lots of carrots left…and upon checking in the fridge, there is an apple that needs to be used up as well.

So why not making this refreshing salad. The lemon juice gives it some kick. The oil allows the better absorption of the vitamin A and who doesn’t want to be able to see better in the dark 😉 Not to mention the salad is yummy.

Ingredients:
about 3 cups of shredded carrots
1 shredded apple
a little bit of oil (like saffron oil)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation:
1. Mix the shredded carrots, shredded apple, oil, lemon juice, and sugar.
2. Enjoy.

Note: Stores well in air-tight contained in the refrigerator. Great healthy yummy snack.

  1. Never would think of a carrot salad, but this looks great! Here are some of my favorite carrot recipes: Vegan Carrot Apple Muffins http://milesforthought.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/carrot-apple-muffins-vegan/ and Roasted Carrot and Garlic Hummus http://milesforthought.wordpress.com/2013/11/28/roasted-carrot-and-garlic-hummus/

  2. Thank you for your comment and for sharing your carrot recipes. I still have carrots (thanks to the ginormous Costco bag) and will try your recipes soon. =)

  3. Ani, last weekend I finally tried out your recipe suggestion. I am a bit of a garlic-wimp and thus modified your recipe to only use 3 garlic cloves instead of the entire head. AND…the dip is to die for. Thank you so much for sharing =)
