Bradley's Summer Carrot Salad

This is my favourite salad to eat all the time not just in Summer and it is super quick to make, especially when the boyfie is doing the making. He says that this is a "whatever he has in his pantry" salad,  I have to say it's a well stocked pantry.


For the salad
  • 3 Carrots finely grated
  • Chargrilled Artichokes chopped (The Woolworths ones)
  • Small handful Parsley chopped
  • Half a palm full of Raisins
  • Half a palm full of Sultanas
  • Small handful Sesame seeds
  • Bed of greens (your preferred combination)
For the dressing
  • Juice of half an orange or a full lime
  • few drops of sesame oil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to season

  • In a bowl combine the finely grated carrots (that's French style according to boyfie), chopped chargrilled artichokes parsley, raisins and sultanas. 
  • Now squeeze the orange or lime over the salad, add the sesame oil and olive oil 
  • Toss and season. 
  • In the meantime heat a pan on medium heat and toast the sesame seeds
  • Place the salad on top of the bed of greens and sprinkle the sesame seeds over.
This is also a great substitute for the traditional coleslaw served at a braai. Just keeping it healthy.

Happy Eating In!
