Carrot Salad

Can add / subtract any of these ingredients to what you have on hand, really. Cranberries, dates, pecans, sunflower seeds, etc! You just want a nice mix of crunchy stuff and little bits of dried fruit.

1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp honey
tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
tsp Dijon mustard

Blend vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and Dijon until well combined.

4 carrots, grated
2 T raisins
2 T dried apricots, chopped to raisin size
2 T pumpkin seeds
2 T chopped almonds
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp unsweetened grated coconut

Put the rest of the ingredients into a bowl. Top with the dressing and toss to mix.

This looks very good! I'm always looking for something different for lunches and ways to use up the carrots I grow in the summer.
Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad you posted this recipe. I am not fond of carrot salad with mayo, so this will be perfect. Have you ever added a dash of olive oil? Thanks!

I have not but I'm sure it would be great if some were added to the dressing so that it's a true vinaigrette. I'll have to try it with a squeeze of lemon juice next too, instead of vinegar.

The lemon juice sounds like a nice touch, I'll have to try it next time I make this, by the way when I made it last night it turned out great. Thanks for the help.
