Grated Carrot Salad

Grated Carrot Salad by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?My sister is visiting us from Kansas so I've been too busy to cook. But I always have time to make grated carrot salad. It is the perfect salad for crazy days. I've been making it for years.

Peal and grate the carrots. Dry roast the mustards seeds in a hot pan until the seeds start to pop. Pour the hot seeds on top of the carrots. Add the vinegar, oil salt and pepper. Mix and eat right away.

Grated Carrot Salad by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?I like to make this salad with mustard seeds, but sometimes I make a peanut or Asian version.
For peanut salad replace the mustard seeds with warm peanuts (and olive oil with peanut oil). For Asian salad replace the mustard seeds with toasted sesame seeds, olive oil with sesame oil and salt for soy sauce. Anyway you make it grated carrots can be made into a very tasty salad.


  1. This was so yummy, although I still think you should have let my hand be in the picture.

  2. Too busy to cook?! I thought Rachael was visiting to learn how to cook.
