Vegan Carrot Raisin Salad

Vegan Carrot Raisin Salad is incredibly delicious, made from fresh ingredients. I'm having a great time preparing meals for our guests, the children are not only having fun but they are enjoying their meals. Tonight was pizza night, and it was fun as everyone got to make homemade pizzas.

For the adults, I prepared Jamaican Rice and Peas, Jerk Tofu, and this absolutely delicious homemade carrot raisin salad. The salad was the perfect cooling side dish for the spicy Jerk Tofu. Everyone enjoyed the recipes.

You can also try these family favorite delicious salads, Cucumber Avocado Salad, Vegan Greek Salad, Vegan Italian Pasta Salad.

Vegan Carrot Raisin Salad

I must say, years ago when I saw carrot raisin salad at potlucks, I would navigate myself away from it. I thought no way could it taste good, now it is one of my favorite summer salads.  If you have never tried a carrot salad, don't be hesitant because it is the best carrot salad.

Shredded carrot salad reminds me of Vegan Coleslaw, so I pretty much love it on burgers, in sandwiches. It is so delicious served as a side dish, simple and easy to prepare and it is great to prepare ahead of time because as it sits it tastes way better.
