Carrot Slaw -- a sweet treat and tasty side dish!

Carrot slaw is my favourite. I have a sweet tooth and this slaw really hits the spot while providing lots of nutrients! I've doctored with recipes for this for years and currently this is how I'm preparing it:

  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and shredded
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup chopped fresh or canned and drained pineapple
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3c plain yogurt
  • nutmeg to taste
  • you may want to add some of the pineapple juice for added sweetness
Mix all together in a bowl and serve or refrigerate before serving. A variation would be to use light Miracle Whip in place of the yogurt. I prepare this using walnuts and yogurt to add protein because I often eat this for lunch. I made this Monday and have been having it since for my lunch or a snack. Today it's time to finish it off!

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
