Carrot & Raisin Salad

Posted by on Jan 13, 2014 | Comments Off on Carrot & Raisin Salad


2 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 TBSP chopped fresh mint leaves
1 TBSP minced fresh chives
pure salt to taste
1 lb carrots (about 4 large), peeled & shredded
1/4 cup raisins (or a 1 oz box)

  • In a salad bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, oil, mint, chives, and salt to taste. Add the carrots & raisins & toss well.



~  I’m a big fan of carrot salads, and this is a good one!  It’s very easy to throw together, especially if you shoot the carrots through a food processor with a shredding blade.

~  If you don’t care for mint, substitute another fresh herb (personally, I’m not a big fan of mint, but happen to really like it in this salad).

~  If you’d prefer, you can swap the raisins for currants.
