Carrot (and Raisin) Salad



6 portion(s)

  • 10 grams white wine vinegar, OR apple cider vinegar OR lemon juice
  • 20 grams olive oil, - extra virgin
  • 20 grams orange juice, - juice your own, or use store-bought
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, - peeled
  • 1 bunch parsley, - washed and dried
  • 3 carrots, - large, washed
  • 1 raisins, - use a handful - according to taste; OPTIONAL
  • Salt and pepper, - to taste

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place vinegar (or lemon juice, according to preference), olive oil, orange juice and wholegrain mustard in the Thermomix (TMX) bowl, and whisk together for 5 seconds/speed 7.  Scrape down sides of bowl.

    2. With the blades running at speed 7, drop the clove of garlic through the hole in the lid.  Let the machine run, until you no longer hear the garlic being chopped.  This should take no more than about three seconds after the garlic has been added.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

    3. Wash the carrots, top & tail them, and then cut into thirds.  Place carrot pieces into the TMX bowl and then roughly chop them for 8 seconds/speed 4.  Be careful with your chopping - you want an approximately even sized texture, neither too big nor too small!  Adjust for your preferences.

    4. OPTIONAL STEP:  Add a handful of raisins, if you'd like a sweet note to the salad, and stir them through gently by using REVERSE/4 seconds/speed 2.

    5. Ensure that the flavours have time to develop, especially if you are using raisins!

    6. Place in serving dish, garnish with a sprig of parsley, and enjoy!

    7. Please let me know your feedback or suggestions on this recipe!  And please also leave notes if you tweak it to your palate, as I'd love to hear and learn!  Thank you!  Gillian tmrc_emoticons.;-)




The acid (vinegar or lemon juice) can be varied, according to your taste, or in line with the rest of your menu.

Additionally, you can add in chopped spring onions for extra flavour and health; you can change the raisins for dried cranberries; chopped chives also adds good flavour to this salad (fresh chives are better, but dried chives work too).

  • I assumed that I was supposed

    I assumed that I was supposed to put the bunch of parsley (aside from garnish) in with the carrots.

    This was amazing, tasty tasty tasty and I haven't even let the flavours develop yet. I am eating this with 1/2 a potato and 1/2 a kumara (that I grew myself). I imagine some cheese will find it's way onto the potatoes tmrc_emoticons.)

    What a great salad.  I made it for a demo I did and it was a huge hit.  Love inspiring people to use their machines and this recipe certainly did that! Thank you.  Will be keeping it on my salad list for sure.

  • Really yummy. Been looking

    Really yummy. Been looking for a good way to use up carrots, and this salad is perfect. I used lemon juice for the acid, and was delicious. I might try adding toasted pine nuts next time, as the nutty taste and texture would go well I think.
