This carrot salad recipe is a family favorite that is quick and easy to make and adds a nice touch of color, crunch, and acid to any meal.
· 1 lb. carrots, peeled and grated
· ½ c. raisins (can use golden raisins or dried cranberries if desired)
· ¼ c. orange juice
· ¼ c. olive oil or canola oil
· ¼ c. cheese of your choice, optional
· 1 T. dried parsley
· ½ tsp. oregano
· ½ tsp. cumin
· ¼ tsp. salt
· ¼ tsp. pepper
Place all the ingredients together in a large salad (or serving) bowl. Toss to coat the ingredients. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It actually tastes better if you refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours to give the flavors a chance to develop.
