Winter carrot salad

winter carrot saladI should have done my food shop on Tuesday night but went to my parents for dinner instead. Last night Mr S was 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. As I had nothing in the way of more traditional salad ingredients, I made this yummy winter carrot salad to accompany our meal.

I love this winter carrot salad 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.

Winter carrot salad


500g (1lb) carrots, grated
1 tbsp chopped chives or spring onion tops
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. It couldn’t be easier!

  1. 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!
