recipe: spicy carrot salad

With carrots in season right now we have stocked up on locally grown bulk carrots to store for the winter.  I shred and freeze them to add to muffins, loaves, soup, stir fry and to make this delicious Autumn salad! (yes, you can use thawed shredded carrot for this salad)

To feed our family of four the recipe goes something like this:

5-6 large carrots, shredded
1/4 cup raisins
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp flax oil

Mix together and let it sit for about 30 minutes to blend the flavours.
You can add or subtract any of the ingredients to suit your family's tastes, it's one of those "taste it as you make it" dishes that can be easily tweaked.

The sweet carrot and raisins mixed with the tart lemon juice and warm spices makes it a salad perfect for the Autumn days ahead.

Do you have any carrot recipes to share?....I've got a lot of carrots!
