Carrot salad recipe ingredients


  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 bunch celery, washed and finely sliced
  • 15g parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 apples, washed, cored and finely sliced


  • 1 tsp (5ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) honey
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 5g parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper

Preparation method

  1. Combine all salad ingredients into a bowl and toss together.
  2. Place mustard, honey and lemon juice into a bowl and whisk together until combined. Slowly add olive oil, while continuing to whisk, stir in the parsley.
  3. Season dressing with salt and pepper and drizzle over salad.
  4. Serve as a light lunch or as an accompaniment to braaied meat.

Wine pairing

This salad will pair well with pork – think marinated spare ribs or honey-glazed loin. The caramelized flavours that develop during cooking call for a moderate amount of sweetness in the wine and an off-dry Riesling or Chenin Blanc are both good choices. For the red wine drinker, the key is a fruit-forward wine with moderate alcohol and low tannin – new-wave Cinsaut or Grenache are good options.
