My dad is from Denmark so I thought I would see if I could find a Danish salad for my 52 Salads challenge. Denmark is not particularly known for their salads. The only one I could remember was Agurkesalat which is a pickled cucumber salad. I came across this shredded carrot salad that I don’t specifically remember having but seems very familiar.
It’s a very simple salad and a snap to put together especially if you have a food processor to do the shredding for you. You can make it with or without the apple – the apple adds some nice sweetness but it may also turn a bit brown if you aren’t eating it immediately. I used yellow carrots for this, but they taste exactly the same as the orange ones so just use whatever is handy.
- 3-5 Large carrots
- 1-2 apples
- 1 lemon
- handful of raisins
- 1-2 tsp sugar
- Shred carrots and apples.
- Juice the lemon.
- Mix all of the ingredients together and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Did They Eat It?
Nicky (almost 2): wouldn’t eat it
Gordie (4.5 years): I loved it!
Deb: nice gentle little salad
Dana: I really enjoyed this salad. It was even better when it had a bit longer to sit in the fridge.
