I had actually made this for ‘No Croutons Required – Carrot’. I didn’t know of the rules that only one entry is allowed per blogger. I really loved this salad, as it was so sweet and fresh and almost made me feel like I was eating dessert. It is very simple to put together and made for a really great lunch.
2 carrots grated
5 scallions, sliced on a bias (both green and white parts)
3 tbsp toasted chopped cashews
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt to taste
Make the dressing by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Combine the carrots, scallions and cashews in a bowl. Toss this mixture with the prepared dressing. Top with the feta and serve as is or serve cold.
Verdict: Salty, sweet, spicy and crunchy. This is my favorite carrot salad now. The feta makes it salty, there is a buttery crunch from the cashews and the spicy kick from the red pepper flakes is balanced by the sweetness of the carrots. A very easy and tasty salad.
