Two Raw Carrot Salad Recipes With a Twist

With a little fantasy we can turn ordinary ingredients into something quite spectacular. Today I will share with you two recipes for a simple carrot salad. One of them was inspired by Yelena of the Cooking Melangery, the other is my own invention. These salads are very simple, but the ingredients added make them somewhat unusual.

Two Raw Carrot Salads With a Twist

~ Carrot Salad with Walnuts, Parsley and Garlic ~

  • 3 medium large carrots, shredded
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup flat parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp raw milk yogurt
  • pinch Celtic salt 
  • freshly grind black pepper

  • In a small bowl whisk a dressing using olive oil, yogurt, and salt.
  • In a larger bowl mix shredded carrots and garlic. Add the dressing and mix again.
  • Add parsley and walnuts and mix well with all the other ingredients. Season with black pepper.
  • Serve with raw Essene bread or crackers and enjoy in good company!

Tip: Yelena used mayonnaise and roasted walnuts in her recipe. I decided to use olive oil and yogurt, and of course, raw walnuts. If you are a vegan you may want to use vegan macadamia nut mayonnaise or just olive oil.

~ Carrot Salad with Turmeric, Hot Pepper and Cilantro ~

  • 3 medium large carrots, shredded
  • 2 thumb size pieces of turmeric (curcuma) root, shredded
  • hot pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp virgin flax seed oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp curry spice
  • pinch Celtic salt 

  • In a small bowl whisk a dressing using all the flax oil, lemon juice, curry spice and salt. Set aside.
  • Mix shredded carrots, turmeric root and hot pepper in a bowl. Add dressing. Mix well. 
  • Add chopped cilantro, mix well.
  • Serve with raw flax seed crackers and enjoy in good company!

Sometimes the simplest ingredients are the best. Use this two recipes as an inspiration to create more exciting raw carrot dishes.
