Carrot Cake Salad

Carrot Cake Salad

Vegan, Gluten Free and Raw

This salad is fabulous and can be easily modified for a large crowd or for two.

3-4 c grated carrots

1/2-1 c raisins

1 large apple, cored & chopped (put some lemon juice on it to prevent browning)

1/4 c chopped walnuts

Cinnamon

I have made this salad without the apple and it still tasted delicious. Any nut will do. I especially liked walnuts because with them it reminds me of a carrot cake. I like to layer the salad in a clear glass bowl or jar for presentation. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and dig in!

I watched Ina Garten make her version of carrot salad and she soaked the raisins to plump them up. Not a bad idea. She also slathered the salad in mayonnaise and sour cream. Lots of options out there!
