Carrot Slaw

A few weeks ago I scored a great deal on carrots at the grocery store and then sort of forgot to do something with them. Typical. So this past weekend I decided they needed to be used and made a little slaw-ish salad out of them that is sooo yummy.





CARROT SALAD


Ingredients:

* Carrots
* Raisins
* Apple cider vinegar
* Maple syrup (real and only real) or honey
* EVOO
* Salt and pepper

Directions:

* Shred carrots in food processor.
* In a bowl, mix vinegar, oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper. I'm not giving measurements because it depends on how many carrots you're using. This is essentially a salad dressing though so you really can't go wrong. Just eyeball it.
* Add in carrots and raisins. Mix to incorporate. Taste to be sure you have enough seasoning and dressing. It does not need to be wet as the carrots will give off some moisture as they sit too. Just enough to coat everything.
* It's yummy right away but best if you let it sit in the fridge at least an hour.
Optional additions:
* Garlic or onion powder
* Chopped scallions
* Dried cranberries
* Raspberry vinegar (I actually used a splash or two in my salad)

I love carrot salad and this looks easy enough for even me to make.
Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I knew that post had the possibility to make a few people angry and I have to admit, I thought of you and two other people when I was writing it (not to offend you though), but I thought I knew you all well enough that you would not take it offensively and I'm very happy with your comment. Thank you.

I haven't thought about this in years! I used to eat it all the time when I was younger.

That is such a great recipe. I am going to remember this for the next time I "forget" about my carrots too! Thank you so much for linking up at Taking A Timeout Thursday!
