Fresh Organic Raw Carrots - the main ingredient in the Basic Organic Salad Recipe

Today I discovered an amazing recipe for basic carrot salad based off a recipe that my friend AV gave me more than a year ago. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s not only nice on its own, but it also provides a base for more elaborate and interesting carrot salads.

Equipment

  • Food processor with grating attachment or a grater with a coarse grate.1

Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated organic carrots
  • 1 Tbsp raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp cold pressed unfiltered organic olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed organic lemon juice

Directions

  • Grate the carrots in the food processor using the coarse grating attachment (or use a hand/box grater using with a coarse grate) and place grated carrots in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and olive oil to the grated carrots
  • mix together well, serve and enjoy!

Please note that you may want to increase/decrease the amount of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice to taste. I tend to like a little less of these ingredients so that the natural flavour of the carrots come through. I’ve previously made a post about the nutrient profile of carrots, which you may want to check out given the prominent role carrots play in this recipe.

From the basic carrot salad recipe above, you can add additional ingredients to extend the dish. I’ve tried the following additions to the basic recipe:

  1. chopped parsley, chopped soaked pecans
  2. chopped parsley, hemp seeds
  3. sesame seeds and chopped sun-dried organic pineapple

The best additions so far in my opinion have been #3 on the list. I’m going to keep playing around and see what works nicely. Please share your successes with extending the basic recipe in the comments section of this post.

Notes
  1. I tired making carrot salad in the past using a fine grate for the carrots and was not happy with the results.

    Hi Delicious Meal&Recipe,

    I’m glad you like the dish. Yesterday, I used the base carrot salad recipe and added some chopped organic parsley that I wanted to use up. Did you just make the base dish or did you spice it up a little? If you did make additions, what did you add?

    Have a great healthful and cruelty-free day Everyone!

    Your friend,

  3. Love this! I make a version of this that includes raisins, dill and chopped sunflower seeds. I use it as a salad or to roll in collard wraps. I was just looking at the dried pineapple in my fridge today wonderng what i should do with it — I’ll have to try your variation of this with them! Thanks for the inspriation!
