Easy Grated Carrot Salad Recipe with Raisins

    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. 

Serves 6-8.
