Carrot Slaw Salad with Apples, Cherries, and Cinnamon

This carrot slaw salad is wonderfully sweet with the cherries, apples, and a touch of cinnamon. I love to make this dish around the holidays. The textures play well with each other and the flavor combination is so delicious and fall inspired.

*To save time you can buy pre-grated carrots, though its more budget friendly if you peel and grate them yourself.

Yield: 8 servings


1 lb. carrots, peeled and grated

1 large red apple, cored and diced

4 mandarin oranges

1 medium orange, zested and juiced

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/4 cup walnuts

1/2-1 tsp. cinnamon


Wash, peel, remove the tops, and grate the carrots. Peel and dice the mandarin oranges. Core and dice the apple.

In a medium bowl combine the carrots, apples, oranges, walnuts, cherries, and cinnamon. Zest the oranges first, then juice into the mix. Toss lightly and serve.
