Carrot apple salad is a favorite side dish in my home. It is packed with vitamins and nutrients and gives my kids a needed vitamin boost during the day.
The kids like it because it’s simple and tasty, and does not have a lot of “extras.” I like it because the recipe contains fresh fruits and vegetables and makes a great healthy alternative to the regular after-school snacks.
Carrot Apple Salad
- 5-7 carrots, peeled and grated
- 2 apples, peeled and grated
- juice of 1 orange or citrus fruit
- Optional: chopped pineapple
Shred carrots and apples with a potato peeler and squeeze orange juice over the salad. If you have a food processor, it will save time and energy with the grating portion of the recipe. Allow the salad to sit in juices for an hour. Serve chilled.
