Curried Carrot Salad with Sliced Almonds

Total Shares 135

Carrots and curry just go well together. They are very complimentary and find their way into the same dish frequently in my kitchen. One of my recent favorites is to make a Curried Carrot Salad with a bit of sliced almonds for garnish.

I like to use those humongous carrots that are usually sold individually, often called “juicing carrots” to make carrot ribbons, lightly season them with a bit of curry and a handful of complimentary ingredients and chill for a bit to let the flavors meld. It’s an easy and impressive side dish that everyone in my house seems to love!

This recipe calls for 1.5 pounds of carrots but you only wind up using about 1 pound in the recipe because there are little pieces left over that are just too awkward to manage with the peeler. I usually toss these in a ziploc bag and save them for either munching on while cooking or throwing into a stock or soup.

If you don’t mind a touch of sweetener, one teaspoon of honey is a great addition to the dressing!

3 Points Plus Per Serving -- Recipe Makes 4 Servings
Serves: 4
  • 1½ pounds large organic carrots
  • 1½ Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon curry powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Begin by washing and peeling the outer layer off of all the carrots.
  2. Trim ends and discard.
  3. Move the peeled carrots to a cutting board and place your peeler flat on the thickest end of one carrot. Move the peeler lengthwise in one direction proceeding to make "ribbons". Continue with this until the carrot piece is too hard to work with. Set aside those carrot stubs to save for later and move on to the next carrot. Repeat.
  4. Combine remaining ingredients except sliced almonds in a small bowl and mix well. Toss with carrot ribbons until evenly distributed, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  5. When ready to serve, toss with sliced almonds, serve and Enjoy!

    My composting guinea pig Crystal thanks you for this recipe–anything that generates plenty of tops and tips is a recipe that she loves (and she knows the sound of the vegetable peeler going down a length of carrot means that she’ll be getting a treat soon).
    Our farm share usually has shorter, fatter carrots–I’m thinking that shaving them with the Benriner (or mandoline) would be the way to make this salad with a height-challenged carrot.
