Sweet and Tangy Carrot Salad

Sweet and tangy carrot salad is a wonderful side dish any time of year. It is cooling in the summer, and refreshing in the winter.

This is the perfect salad for customizing:

  • Switch up the raisins for cranberries
  • Shred the carrot fine or more coarsely
  • Substitute sour cream or mayonnaise for the yogurt
  • If you find it too sweet, leave out the honey
  • Add walnuts or almonds for an added crunch

This is a common salad found with dishes that include a lot of flavourful spices or are particularly spicy. It is great because it cools the mouth.

In the winter, when fresh vegetables are scarce or expensive, this is a fantastic salad that is inexpensive and fresh tasting.
