Carrot-Raisin Slaw


Serves 4 to 6

This tasty slaw is served cold, so it makes a good lunch box dish. The raisins and the citrus dressing make it kid friendly and a nice change from cooked carrots or dried up carrot sticks from the school’s cafeteria.

4 large carrots (about 3/4 pound), shredded
½ cup shredded jicama, apple, or kohlrabi
1 cup raisins
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons honey
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Combine the carrots, jicama, and raisins in a medium bowl, and toss to mix.
  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, orange juice, vinegar, oil, and honey in a small bowl or cup, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the slaw ingredients, and stir to mix. Chill covered for a few hours to allow the fl avors to blend.
