Simply Sides: Carrot Salad

9 Dec

Carrot Salad

Carrot salad with raisins and apples

People think I’m weird for munching on carrots on the slopes. Technically, I munch on the chair lift, but carrots are a great snack food, and I don’t care if I look like Bugs Bunny. (Yeah, I’m munching on the long ones, not the babies.) Carrots are a great source of antioxidant compounds and pro-vitamin A, and they fit nicely into my little Camelback backpack. So what’s up, Doc?

This particular carrot salad recipe is easy, and it is a nice complement to the Caliente Pockets I’ll show you in the next post.


3-4 long carrots (shredded via cheese grater)

Handful of raisins

One small apple cut up into small pieces (any kind you have around the house)

Salt & Pepper

Balsamic vinaigrette dressing – BTW this can be easily made by whisking together EVOO and balsamic vinegar.


Toss all the salad ingredients together and you’re done, Doc.
