As #foodiefriday is almost over, here’s a simple side dish that’s a go-to in our kitchen: carrot salad. You can use currants or golden raisins if you prefer, and regular mayo will work in a pinch, but I prefer the depth of flavor that comes from Kewpie (Japanese) mayo.
1/3 c. raisins
2 Tbsp. lime juice
¼ c. sour cream
¼ c. Japanese mayonnaise
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lb. carrots, shredded
1/3 c. pineapple, diced
Place the raisins in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and then drain. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the line juice, sour cream, Japanese mayonnaise, sugar and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
Place the carrots in a large bowl. Add the pineapple and raisins. Pour the lime juice dressing over the carrot mixture and stir until evenly coated.
