Winter carrot salad

imageI should have done my food shop on Tuesday night but went to my parents for dinner instead. Last night Mr S is here for dinner so we made do with what was in the freezer – a lovely cheese and broccoli quiche that was reduced in Asda a few weeks ago served with chips and, as I had nothing in the way of more traditional salad ingredients, a yummy carrot salad.

I love this every bit as much , if not more, than a lettuce based salad. It is easy to make and nutritious too. My kids enjoyed this when they were little, and it is still a favourite.

To make it you will need:

500g (1lb) carrots, grated
1 tbsp chopped chives or spring onion tops
Vinaigrette:
1 tbsp cider vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to season

Place the carrots and chives in a salad bowl. Mix the vinaigrette ingredients in a jug and beat together. Pour over the carrots and stir. Season to taste.

Easy!

    I mixed grated raw carrot and cooked beetroot tonight and added olive oil, wine vinegar, grain mustard and seasoning. I’ll have to make more as OH polished off what I had assumed I could have for lunch tomorrow. Thank you for the nudge!
