Carrot and corn salad with raspberry vinaigrette

August 7, 2011  • 

 

A salad that turned out to be perfect for a hot summer day; the raspberry vinegar that was made so easily with some fresh berries and white vinegar is combined with walnut oil for a lightly sweet and fruity dressing.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Carrots, peeled and shredded
  • Walnuts, toasted in a 300F oven for 15 minutes
  • Corn
  • Eggs, hard-boiled
  • Raspberry vinaigrette: one part raspberry vinegar, three parts walnut oil, a dash of green peppercorns

    while I’m still swooning over the pancake recipe, I better turn my attention to this lighter healthier recipe in the meantime. My waistline says so.

    I love shredded carrot salads in the summer, and I am always experimenting with different kinds of dressings. The raspberry vinaigrette must bring out the sweetness in the carrots.

    I think we had the same thoughts this week…something a little different and on the sweet side for salad! Lovely photo and yummy sounding recipe, and how great that you post a recipe link for home made vinegar as well! Too cool!

    This recipe is ideal for me and my family. We eat gluten free, and this combination of colourful veggies and toasted nuts is a very satisfying dish. I can’t wait to share it.
