This salad is where we meet in the middle. It is kinda, sorta like coleslaw, but so much fresher, crunchier, and better for you. Not sure if you've noticed my love of carrots, but I try to put them in everything. My kid says he doesn't like them, but he is going on looks alone because I don't think he has ever knowingly put a carrot in his mouth.
This is a quick, simple side dish and goes especially well with barbecue - which is what we're having tonight. This Zesty Chicken is awesome and amazing - another thing worth trying.
OHM's Carrot Salad
6 large carrots, peeled
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 apples (I prefer honeycrisp or pink lady), peeled and chopped
1/4 reduced fat mayo
1/4 cup light sour cream
1 tablespoon (or a little more) honey
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
salt to taste
Using your peeler, or a grater, shred carrots into a bowl. Add raisins and apples. In a separate container, whisk the remaining ingredients and combine with salad. You can eat this right away, or put it in the fridge for up to three days. Mmmmm, good good good.
When I told the little dude what I was making, he informed me he would just like the apples and raisins, thankyouverymuch. But with a little coercion, even he had to admit it was pretty darn good.
