Carrot and Currant Salad Recipe

I feel silly sometimes, posting such simple recipes. But, honestly, my goal is to get more vegetables into those little bellies every single time they sit down to eat. Sometimes we really have only one minute to make something to add to a meal or for a snack.

Last week I was racing to put together at least one vegetable dish for lunch and remembered about grating carrots. Super fast. No need to even start up a burner. I use a fine grater for smaller children, but a grater with larger teeth will give more texture for older children and adults. This salad was the first thing that disappeared off her plate.

Carrot and Currant Salad

2 grated carrots
1 Tbsp currants
splash of olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice (or a little more if you are really into lemon)
small pinch of sea salt (opt)

1.  Place all ingredients in a medium size bowl and stir!

Note:  You can add some chopped parsley or mint to add a little more flavor and color.

    • Sometimes, I just grab a carrot or apple, bring the grater to the table and grate right onto a child’s plate! Children think graters are kind of fancy.
