Winter Carrot and Ginger Salad with Almonds

Come home from a few weeks away and you’re stuck with the age old dilemma: what do I eat?

Fortunately I recently returned home to a 10 pound bag of carrots in my refrigerator, the result of a”of course I want to split twenty pounds of carrots from your CSA!” conversation with a friend. (Just think of the carrot cardamom marmelade I am thinking of making…)┬áSaid friend made a carrot delivery while I was out of town and hence the creation of a winter salad that’s both sweet and gingery and colorful enough to brighten a gray day.

Winter Carrot and Ginger Salad with Almonds


4 carrots, shredded

1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped

1/4 cup currants

2 teaspoons minced ginger


1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

juice of 1/2 an orange


In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and set aside.

In a large bowl combine all salad ingredients. Add dressing and mix until until well blended.
