This recipe makes a regular appearance at our house, as a main-dish big salad. We eat it on a pile of baby spinach leaves. The recipe serves 2 as a main serving and 4 as a side dish.
CARROT-POPPYSEED SALAD (vegan)1/4 cup poppyseed dressing*
2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup raisins
2 oz. cubed cheese (Monterrey jack is good, so is cheddar)
fresh spinach or lettuce leaves
In a large bowl, toss ingredients together. Can be served on a bed of lettuce or spinach.
*Poppyseed Dressing1 Tbsp. honey or vegan sweetener
1 pinch onion powder
1/8 tsp. ground mustard seed
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. poppyseeds
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Combine ingredients in a jar. Put the lid on and shake well before using.
Note: Here's a recipe for a larger amount of this dressing: Golden Poppyseed Dressing, which is nice to have on hand for other salads, like Waldorf, Avocado & Orange, etc.
