Terri Ann’s Carrot Salad

Standard

Along the way, we make friends all over the place. One such friend is TerriAnn, who used to be a vet tech at the Animal Wellness Center where our hounds go for their health care needs. Everyone there is a pal – Doc Scott Sanderson, his manager Ani, and the rest of the team. They were amazing when we lost Lochrima, and have helped out with foster dogs since.

We were delighted to find out that TerriAnn was vegan! She brought her delicious Carrot Salad to share at one of our parties. Everyone loved it so much, we asked for the recipe. Now, we’re passing it along to you.

The flavor depth of this simple salad will surprise you! There’s no actual dressing, but it’s so bright and refreshing, it doesn’t need to be weighed down by even one more ingredient. The contrast of the sharp lime with the naturally sweet carrots and coconut are perfectly balanced. Not a fan of cilantro? Use parsley instead.

TerriAnn’s Carrot Salad

6 carrots, grated

1/2 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened

1/4 cup currants

2 Tbs. sesame seeds

1 tsp. ground coriander

juice and zest of one lime

fresh cilantro, chopped, to taste (we add about 1/2 cup)

salt and pepper, to taste (optional)

 

Grate carrots into a bowl. Add all other ingredients and toss. Serve cold, adding more or less lime juice as needed to dress the salad.

This recipe is vegan and gluten-free. Feeds two to six, depending on portion size.

 

And we want to add – thanks TerriAnn, Doc, Ani and the rest of the crew at Animal Wellness Center. We have known you for more than a decade and you all have ALWAYS given our dogs the love and care you would give your own. 🙂
