Carrot and Apple Salad

I hope you all enjoyed my Bok Choy Apple Slaw recipe yesterday.  I bought a basketful of apples and carrots, so I had to come up with another recipe using apples and carrots.

This recipe is just as simple as the Bok Choy recipe.

I hesitated making a carrot salad because the ones I have seen always had raisins in it.  Don’t get me wrong,  I am a fan of raisins.  Just not with carrots in my salad.

And I promise no raisins were used or abused for this recipe.

Ingredients

1 PP per serving

I do enjoy a good salad.  I actually prefer the salads that I make at home then any salad at any restaurant.  When the ones that hides themselves as a salad but are chock full of calories.  Can you name a “hidden” salad dish at your favorite restaurant that is chock full of calories?

  2. That looks terrific. My mom use to make a carrot/apple salad but it was just a mayo dressing. Yours looks VERY tasty!
