This delicious varation on a carrot salad was sent in by Eve’s Little Earthlings. I can’t wait to try it. But watch out! Don’t let those carrots get away! They are rather lively…
¼ cup walnuts
1 tablespoon grated coconut
2 cups grated peeled carrots
1 apple, cored, peeled and grated
½ lemon, juiced and zested
½ cup orange juice
½ cup raisins or currants
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons grated gingerroot
Toast walnuts for a few moments in a frying pan on medium heat and add the coconut towards the end of the toasting. Be careful, coconut burns very quickly.
When I am in a hurry, I skip the toasting!
In a large bowl combine carrot, apple, lemon zest, lemon juice, orange juice, raisins, salt and ginger
Top with walnuts and coconut and serve, or chill in fridge until the next meal.
And here are a few carrots that escaped being grated today!
