The recipe for this week for French Fridays with Dorie (I am tentatively saying that I am hoping to be back cooking somewhat regularly with this group each week for the recipes that fit in here with us) from Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table cookbook, is Cafe-Style Grated Carrot Salad found on page 107.
I had most of the ingredients out for making Dorie's Bill's Big Carrot Cake from her Baking From My Home to Yours book and remembered that I had seen this recipe on one of my many search and seek recipe jaunts through the book, so decided that the time was right for making it today.
Ingredient list: carrots, Dijon, honey, cider vinegar, canola oil, salt, pepper, raisins, and walnuts.
This is a great tasting little salad. While it had many of the same ingredients as the carrot cake, the carrot cake combines them in a totally sweet way while this salad had a nice sour/sweet tang going on with the combination of the raisins/honey and the Dijon/cider vinegar.
It all comes together very quickly and can be made and parked several hours before serving, always a good deal. Definitely a repeat for this carrot-loving family.
