Carrot Salad

Ok, ok, I know what your thinking – THIS ISN’T EVEN A PROPER RECIPE ASDFGHJKL WHAT IS THIS?
But seriously, it’s the nectar if the gods.
Even if you don’t like carrots, this will make you a changed man (or woman, but you get the jist).

It’s perfect for a potluck or picnic as a side salad if you don’t want an actual salad. I guarantee this will instantly make you popular (umm… Maybe not, but it sure as hell is delicious!)
I normally add raisins for that extra sweetness, but unfortunately I didn’t have any this time. (And because I’m lazy I couldn’t be bothered to go out and get some… Sorry…. Am I a bad food blogger?!)
Seriously (how many times can I say seriously in one post?!?) add the walnuts, they give great texture!

Carrot Salad vegan, gluten free, dairy free
Serves 2 (or one if you’re me)

2 large carrots
1 tablespoon and a bit of apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon extra olive oil
1/2 teaspoon honey, or maple syrup (can be omitted)
Handful of chopped walnuts
Handful of raisins

Grate carrots.

Add olive oil, vinegar then honey to taste.
Add raisins and walnuts then lightly toss.

Leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving (seriously don’t skip this!)
Garnish with walnuts before serving.
