The simplest salad in the world

And I adore adore adore it.

Swedish Carrot-Apple Salad

Shred carrots and apples in equals parts --- maybe 3 apples and 5 medium carrots. A course grate.  About 2 cups or so of each.  Mix in the juice of a whole lemon.

When I eat this I feel like my body is saying.

Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnkkkk  Yooooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Made it last night for dinner and I am craving it already again this morning.

And my kids can't get enough.  I much prefer them eating raw carrots this way rather than sticks.  Carrot sticks being eaten by little kids scare me.  Actually apples do to.  So maybe I should rename this salad.

SUPER SAFE SWEDISH CARROT APPLE SALAD.  ha ha.  Now go make it!  Your body will thank me (and my swedish mother in law)


  1. Thank you! This is perfect, I was just staring at the computer wondering what kind of veggetable I should make tonight and I read this, and viola! Done and done. Except I have no lemon only a lime. Hope it still tastes good...

  2. I would probably skip the lime and do nothing -- just apples and carrots. I don't think the flavors will mesh, but tell me how it turns out! The lemon is excellent though....

  3. orange would be really good...
