10 min

Yield:
4 to 6 servings

Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 (10-ounce) bags shredded carrots, available from the produce department
  • 1 cup (3 handfuls) raisins
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds (available in the spice aisle)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 1/2 cup (2 handfuls) light brown sugar

In my opinion it tasted more like a poppy seed salad then a carrot one-2tablespoons is too much-I decided to make it again using 1/2 tbls item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like the classic carrot salad but found this to be a good alternative. Served it with an Indian dinner of marinated grilled chicken, lentil dal, Basmati rice, and tomato chutney. Wasn't the star of the show but a great character actor. I did take an earlier suggestion and grated in some fresh ginger root. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Sounds great and easy! And jennylola, WOW!!! Did you realize that some people just aren't great cooks, or just learning, or conversely, a total klutz around sharp utensils [like my daughter who cannot grate or cut ANYthing without cutting herself severely]??? Sometimes it's just better not ... ahhhh, never mind. :-} God bless! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Why did I even look at this "recipe" when I was searching for a carrot slaw/salad. Pre-grated carrots? I would prefer to be more "chef-like" and grate my own. And why give the exact measurement in cups and then explain it again in "handfuls" What kind of man-hands do you have to have to be able to hold a cupful in them? But as always, thanks for telling me exactly in the supermarket where to find my items. The poppy seeds I had been using all along were from the garden department. item not reviewed by moderator and published
