Carrot Raisin Salad
Easy, quick and refreshing, this salad is perfect for picnics and is also a great way to incorporate veggies into a meal.
- 2 bags shredded carrots (about 10 ounces each), available in the produce department at the grocery store
- 1 cup raisins (3 handfuls)
- 2 tablespoons poppy seeds (available in the spice aisle)
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 oranges, juiced
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar (2 handfuls)
Combine all ingredients well – using your fingers to toss – and coat the carrots thoroughly. Transfer to a travel container or serving dish. As the salad sits, the raisins will plump a bit and carrots will take on citrus taste.
