Carrot Salad

About This Recipe

Yield:3 cups


  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light olive oil (or a mixture of vegetable and olive oil)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)
  • Finely chopped parsley


  1. 1

    Soak the raisins in the vinegar for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving vinegar. Mix raisins with the carrots.

  2. 2

    Add the reserved vinegar to the oil, season with salt and pepper, add cinnamon or nutmeg for additional flavor, and toss with the carrots and raisins. Sprinkle with parsley.

  3. 3

    Note: It is best to grate the carrots by hand on a coarse grater, but the job can be done quickly, and almost as effectively, in the food processor.
