snow salad (with apples, carrots, raisins, and ginger)

I did a version of this here on Mamatouille back in the summer of '08, but hey, it's danged good in winter, too.

This salad is what you make when you don't have any greens in the house for a green smoothie but you want something fresh and as raw as possible--I usually add pineapple but had none, and this time threw in some freshly grated ginger, which was absolutely superb and was a perfect complement to the rest of the ingredients.

You'll need:
  • 6 shredded carrots
  • 2 Braeburn apples, peeled and chopped (or your favorite apple breed)
  • 1/2 c. raisins (Why do organic raisins say to refrigerate? Poo on that.)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. mayo (I buy the kind made with olive oil)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • few squeezes of honey

Do this:

Mix all together and enjoy!

Speaking of which, I'm about to go have myself another little snacky bowl of this stuff while I read more of The Cookbook Collector and wait for the Seattle-snowstorm-of-a-generation.
