Intro: Ensalada Pelirroja Enojada - Raw Carrot Salad

How do you make a salad rich?

For better (obscene) carrot jokes, checkout this website.


Carrots are amazingly good for you. They may lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and improve your eye health. This recipe calls for an entire pound of these beauties. Throw in some hot peppers, garlic and lime juice, you will be feeling golden.

Step 1: Supplies

1 lb carrots
1 poblano pepper
1 lime
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup raw pepitas
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Step 2: The Dressing

Chop up half of the poblano pepper. Save the other half for later.

Crush and peel the garlic.

Add the poblano pepper, cumin, paprika garlic and olive oil to the blender. Blend. Note, it will probably not be 100% smooth, but you won't notice once it's on the salad.

Squeeze the juice of one lime into the dressing. Blend again.

Set dressing aside.

Step 3: Shred

Wash your carrots well.

Use a vegetable peeler to shred them. This will create a pretty, curly salad with good texture that will hold up well in the fridge, even after it is dressed.

Step 4: Slice

Thinly slice the poblano pepper.

Step 5: Toss

Move your shredded carrots and sliced pepper to a large bowl.

Top with raisins and pepitas.

Pour dressing over salad.

Toss until carrots are fully coated.

Adjust spices as desired.

Step 6: Eat It Up, YUM

Eat as much as you want. Everything in this salad is good for you :).
