Oriental Carrot Salad


Carrot SaladThis is an interesting salad.  The ginger and lemon gives it a just a bit of kick; the raisins add sweetness.  The carrots add crunch.  The peanuts are reminiscent of many Thai dishes.

We went easy on the seasoning.  You may wish to add a little more lemon and ginger.

Ingredients

1 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon finely ground fresh ginger
2 cups matchstick carrots

2/3 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

salt and pepper

3/4 cup chopped peanuts

Directions

  1. Make the dressing by mixing the lemon juice, mayonnaise, sugar, and fresh ginger together until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Stir in the carrots and sprouts.  Add the raisins and cilantro.  Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Place servings on salad plates.  Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.  Serve chilled.
