Carrot Salad

Got carrots that have lost their sweetness?  This is a great way to use them up. Light and refreshing salad for lunch or dinner.


  • SALAD:
  • 5-6 fairly large carrots, scrubbed
  • 1/2 c raisins
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp veggie oil or mild olive oil
  • 1 tsp of honey or more to taste, depends on sweetness of carrots
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • trail mix with sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, dried pineapple etc.


  • In a large glass bowl, shred the carrot using a medium setting. You can leave the skins on if they are in good condition.
  • Add in the raisins.  They don’t need plumping as they will absorb some of the dressing.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients and add to bowl.
  • Toss lightly and chill.  Will keep for about 2 days.
  • Serve with toppings.
