“You can add other vegetables such as chopped celery or mange tout for added crunch. Any nuts are a good addition to this salad – toast them a little first in a dry frying pan for extra flavour.

What to do

  1. Wash and grate the carrots. Alternatively chop them into
    matchstick size pieces. Place in a bowl.
  2. Wash the apple and chop into small chunks. Add to the bowl.
  3. In a another bowl or cup, mix the oil, juice, and cumin and
    beat together with a whisk or fork.
  4. Add the dressing to the bowl and stir well into the carrot and
    apple mixture. Season with the pepper.
  5. If you are using raisins and peanuts, stir these into the mixture
    before serving.

“This salad is good in a lunch box and can be easily made by children with a little help.”
