FFwD: Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad

Carrot Salad

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad and it is going to be a super quick post — not because it doesn’t deserve more review but because it is so amazingly hot upstairs that I don’t want to be up here very long.

1. I used golden raisins, pecans and cilantro in my salad.
2. I halved the recipe.
3. It was very good and a nice, cool dinner along with a chicken and herb sandwich.

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and a couple of photos.

After grating the carrots…I used my food processor grating attachment for the first time and it worked very well.

  • The chicken and herb sandwich sounds tempting – it’s nice to have “cool” food for hot days.

    Cher: Yeah, it was easy, good and cold! We had some leftover grilled, marinated herb chicken and I just toasted a piece of bread, spread it with a little goat cheese, added some of the chicken and drizzled the leftover chimichurri sauce over. Carrot salad on side. Awesome.

  • We really enjoyed this one, too. We served it with grilled chicken & corn bread. Stay cool!

  • Wish I would’ve had some cilantro in the fridge… sounds like an amazing addition! :)

  • I think pecan would work even better than walnuts. Together with a chicken sandwich sounds perfect! Enjoy your weekend!

  • Cilantro sounds great. I’ve read a lot of people making this with citrus. I’m going to try cilantro and lime next.

    The chicken sandwich sounds delicious and goes perfectly with the carrot salad. I have been growing
    cilantro in pots on the patio and I keep forgetting about it. Duh! I go out to pick the basil and parsley
    but I never know how to use cilantro. Time to start experimenting.
