raw carrot salad

i made this for a mid-day snack. i was feeling raw, and didn't want to spoil my dinner. perfect!

  • 1 pkg. baby carrots (6oz.), hand chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons raw mustard
  • 3 tablespoons nama shoyu/braggs aminos
mix it all up and enjoy the healthy. i make raw mustard by grinding up a couple tablespoons of yellow mustard seeds with a dash of raw apple cider vinegar and water. of course, you can use regular mustard if you aren't worried about eating raw. it makes about two servings of a lite snack. i also think it would make a nice side dish for dinner.

i LOVE snacking on carrots. they fill me up, but don't ruin supper, which is nice. i've never been ambitious enough to do more than just snack on them straight outta the bag though, haha... this salad looks delish! carrots + mustard = very happy me.

Great sounding salad! I have to try making my own raw mustard. I always think that there is too much vinegar in prepared mustard and this way I could control the amount. Thanks for the idea!
