This week I received a bunch of carrots and apples in our bountiful basket, which when I saw the bounty I immediately thought about making an old fashioned carrot salad – which I did tonight – and scored raves from the family. This is how you can score some raves too…..
4 cups shredded carrots
2 cups chopped apples
¼ cup dried currants
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar (do not sub – any other vinegar would be to sour)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Agave nectar (or honey)
To a large mixing bowl add the shredded carrots, apples and currants. Set aside.
Next, to a small bowl add the mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, lemon juice and Agave nectar. Mix well and top the carrot mixture. Then, toss well.
I have garnished each plate with some onion chive blossoms from my herb garden.
