Carrot-Raisin Salad is a deliciously refreshing balance of sweet and savory flavors.
What’s your favorite way to celebrate summer? Maybe pool parties, ice cream socials, or a night at the drive-in theater with friends? (I love the drive-in, by the way! Even though every time I go I get bitten alive by mosquitoes and somehow end up freezing halfway through the movie, lol. Still, I can’t let a summer go by without a visit to the drive-in.)
Another of my favorite ways to celebrate summer is picnics, Pretty Woman-style. You know what I’m talking about…where you take your sweetie and head to the park with couple of sandwiches, and then take the whole afternoon and just chill (shoes off, of course). Picnics with a group of family or friends are always fun too.
This Carrot-Raisin Salad is one of my favorite things to tuck into my picnic basket; it comes together fast and is dairy-free so no worries about toting it along on a picnic! The recipe makes two servings, but can easily be adjusted to feed any number.
