It’s the 3rd week of confinement in the UK since the outbreak of the corona virus – Covid19!
One vegetable that is plentiful in the supermarkets is the carrot. We are in spring and the weather has warmed up so I thought a carrot salad would be perfect. By the way, grated carrot salad is a French recipe.
It’s a healthy, refreshing and easy to prepare salad. I have added a few ingredients of my own but they are optional.
- 3 or 4 large carrots, washed, peeled and grated
- 2 tbsp of cider vinegar or any other white vinegar
- 2 tbsp of honey
- 3 or 4 tbsp of olive oil
- Pepper & salt, to your taste
- A handful of raisins and walnuts (optional)
After washing and peeling, grate the carrots, using the larger holes on your grater. Put aside.
Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking the vinegar with olive oil and honey. Season to your taste.
Combine the vinaigrette with the grated carrots. Adjust the taste to your liking then place the salad on a platter. Refrigerate for a while then serve the carrots sprinkled with some walnuts and raisins, if using any.
