Carrot Apple Walnut Salad

7 Nov

The vibrant orange of the carrots will brighten your meal.

As the daylight gets shorter and the weather turns colder, we try to make foods that will comfort and cheer us up. This vibrant and delicious carrot salad is bright with orange carrots, purple raisins and white swiss cheese. It’s a snap to make with ingredients easily found in your grocery store. The salad goes great as a side dish along with garden burgers.


1 bag of shredded carrots
1 cup of raisins
2 cups of cubed swiss cheese
2 cups of crushed walnuts or pecans
1 apple (tart, like a granny smith) sliced thin
1/4 cup of Balsamic Vinaigrette (more or less depending on your taste)
Salt, to taste


Prepare all of the ingredients. Cube the swiss cheese, crush the walnuts and peel/core/slice the apples. Then, combine all these ingredients plus the carrots and raisins in a big mixing bowl. Pour Balsamic Vinaigrette on the top and mix well. Add more if you like extra flavor… less, if you’d like to cut calories. Add a pinch of salt, to taste. Enjoy!!
