Carrot Salad

My mom used to make carrot salad alot
when we were little,
especially in the summer
when she didn't want to heat up the kitchen.
This is the most basic carrot salad recipe on the planet.
Okay, maybe not the planet, but,
it's pretty simple.

Carrot Salad

8 carrots, shredded

1/2 C olive oil
1/2 C apple cider vinegar or balsamic
1/4 C water
2-4 T honey
1 t Italian seasonings
1 t salt
1 clove crushed garlic
***Add-in options include sesame or sunflower seeds,
walnuts, raisins, or black olives.

  1. That sounds wonderful. My Husband loves carrots. Now if they would only get to growing a little bigger out in the garden, this will be on the menu real soon.

  2. This sounds great. I think some squirrels have dug up one of my carrot patches,so hopefully i will get some out of the other. I always see a dish like this at church or something with raisins in it but have never tried it. i might have to now :)

  3. Jane-Enjoy it thoroughly!

    Kelly-It's really refreshing and you don't have to worry about leaving it out at a church function.

  4. Wow! That sounds like an easy, quick, twist on traditional salad ☺ I hope you are able to make it over to our hop this week. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. My go-to carrot salad recipe is pretty basic:

    some mayo (really, to taste)
    a smidge of horseradish
    a spoon of honey
