Carrot Ribbon Salad

What do you do if you run out of lettuce and feel like a salad?  Peel carrots into some yummy carrot ribbons!
I just had to share my lunch with you today!  A super easy and quick salad you can whip up for one with the ingredients you have on hand!

2 carrots, peeled into ribbons.
Toppings, I used a no salt, nut, seed, fruit mix.
(have some fun with this and add what you like and let me know!)
Dressing, I used very little of a poppy seed dressing.

Put it all into your fave bowl and enjoy!

For some reason I just love carrot ribbons!  I think they taste way better then chopped carrots! I often put carrot ribbons on top of garden salads to fancy them up!

I just made a carrot salad last night for dinner and I JUST got finished eating the leftovers for lunch. It was great, I'll be posting it sometime next week on my blog. Looks like we both have carrots on the brain today!

Lima beans also make an awesome salad base! With cucumbers, cherry tomato's and oil/vinegar dressing...topped with a bit of pepper...YUM-YUM!!

Mandy said...

That looks awesome! I love carrots but never thought of using them as the base of a salad rather than a decoration on top. ;) I'm gonna try it!

That is a brilliant alternative for those days when you want to healthy, but need some variety in your salad. Great idea!

Kristin said...

So very gourmet looking! Thanks for sharing this idea.- I've got to stop reading food blogs at the moment...my tummy is starting to growl :-) Planning to try your Naan tomorrow for dinner! Wish me luck!

Very clever, Angie! I like carrots prepared certain ways, and not in others. I think this would be something I'd love!

I'll take some of that with raisins, please. ;-)

Yum! I love carrots, but just recently I have found that eating lots of raw ones makes my mouth itchy. I think it's Oral Allergy Syndrome playing havoc with my palate. (grrr...)

What a great, simple salad that would be good for kids! You could give it some creative name and I'd bet they'd gobble it down. (mine would, I'm sure). Thanks for linking up to Food Revolution Friday!

Great idea! I don't know why I've never tried something like this b/c I grew up eating carrot & raisin salad.

My daughter would love this! I'm not a carrot eater, but the rest of my family loves them so I'm always looking for good carrot recipes for them.

Those ribbons look so yum! I'm not a lettuce fan, so this would be a great salad switch-up!

Kathleen said...

This sounds like a fun way to make carrot salad!

This is exactly what I've been looking for. After peeling carrots for coleslaw a few months ago I was so smitten with the swirls and curls of the ribbon shreds, I wanted to find a simple, tasty salad that featured them. This looks fantastic!
