A colorful, healthy Raw Carrot Salad that's alive with juicy flavors! I love how these ingredients work beautifully together and I'm so excited to be sharing it with you. When I shared it on my Instagram reels it got lots of love so here it is.
We are in the middle of summer which means cooking time in the kitchen decreases and meals get lighter. I seriously did think about cutting the carrots Julienne style because they look so elegant but I also wanted something different. Grating them is not different I get that, but the ingredients are my own take on how we prefer eating them.
I used an old fashioned box grater (old and trusted) and if you watch the video you'll notice that i grated them onto a sheet of baking paper. You don't have to do that I only did it because I always have that one odd sheet of paper in the drawer that I never put back in the box. Also it did a pretty neat job of picking up those grated carrots!
Grate Or Cut The Carrots
You can use your food processor attachments to grate your carrots or a special kitchen knife for Julienne carrots. You can also cut them Julienne style yourself using a small kitchen knife. As long as you have cut off the sides to create a flat surface to turn the carrot onto you just keep cutting slices from there. Anyway, what I want to say is this that I also said to my daughter when she called the other day and asked about roast potato:
Don't worry too much about how you cut in this case a carrot and in her case a potato. It's always nice to have a great shaped veg but it wont help much if the flavors are not there so rather focus more on pulling in the correct flavors.
That, and the fact that vegetables like carrots and potatoes, are such simple, affordable, easily grown vegetables that we shouldn't over think it. Work with the temperature and ingredients.
This recipe was created in My Anosmic Kitchen were all my recipes are prepared with nothing but love and flavor.
