Sweet Carrot Crunch Salad by Leena Athparia, ND. It can be challenging incorporating salads in the winter, when we feel like hot foods. Nonetheless, vegetables are important to add into the diet and a portion of raw food can help provide enzymes, fibre and nutritients we need that sometimes get reduced by cooking. Root vegetable salads are a perfect addition to the meal especially during the colder months with carrots, pumpkin, beets. In Ayurvedic medicine, all the different tastes are combined into a meal, including some sweet. When we incorporate a natural sweet into the meal, you won’t crave a sweet dessert afterwards. For people that crave sweets, this is perfect ! Tip: Always best to serve the salad at room temperature (not straight out of the fridge which is too cold). try taking the ingredients out of the fridge a few hours before you prepare the salad.For people who have colder constitutions, increase the ginger & pepper. This will help warm you up since it reduces the cooling effect of raw food! INGREDIENTS Salad: 1 large Carrot 1 medium Apple 1/2 cup Chopped pineapple (optional) 1/2 cup Grated coconut (fresh is best – or dry organic) 1/4 cup Dates 1/4 cup Roasted peanuts (or almonds or sunflower seeds) 1/4 cup Roasted or raw sesame seeds Dressing: 1 Orange 1 Lemon (juice of) 1-2 tbsp Honey (raw, unpasteurized) 3 tbsp Olive oil Salt to taste Black pepper, coarsely ground, to taste Grated ginger (optional) Preparation Method:Salad: Wash the carrot, peel, and finely chop it. Wash the apple and chop it into small squares. Chop the peanuts and dates into small pieces. Mix them with the chopped carrot, apple, and pineapple, together with some grated coconut, and roasted sesame seeds. Dressing: Juice the orange and lemon or lime. In a small glass bowl, whisk together the orange and lemon/lime juices, honey, salt, and pepper. Holding the measuring cup of olive oil about 30 cm above the bowl, pour the oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly. Pour the dressing on the salad ingredients, mix well, and serve. http://yurisvillage.com/sweet-carrot-crunch-salad/
