WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SIMPLE CARROT SALAD

  • Fresh carrots
  • Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
  • Cilantro

CARROT SALAD COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

There are no real cooking instructions. Just peel the carrots and make the dressing unless you’re using store-bought.

COOKING CONSIDERATIONS & TIPS

Use a vegetable peeler, mandolin, or sharp knife to shred the carrots. Peeler and mandolin are the ways to go, as they cut down time and be more efficient

Choose the freshest carrots you can find for a true carrot taste. 

Do your shredding ahead of time and store in a ziplock back, then just serve with your dressing when you’re ready.

The homemade buttermilk dressing is worth the time. It’s flavorful and a great compliment to the salad.

Feel free to add more ingredients for a more traditional carrot salad recipe. I’m not a raisins in my salad kinda guy, but if that’s your thing go ahead and rock that along with apples.
