The flavor of this salad is so satisfying.  The touch of curry may sound odd, but, it gives a depth to this salad that makes it one of our all-time favorites. Making homemade curry powder is easy and so wonderful!

You really will be surprised at how easy it is to make this carrot salad.

The dressing is simple, and as mentioned, the hint of curry is the perfect match against the sweet raisins and the flavorful carrots.

Store-bought curry is perfectly fine, but, honestly, there are so many types of curry powder, when you make your very own, you know exactly what you’re getting.

Mmmm...homemade curry powder

You can absolutely purchase pre-shredded carrots for this salad, but why not go with fresh, whole carrots to start with?

We use the shredding attachment on our food processor to shred them in no time at all.

Carrots are so nutritious and really, really delicious. But we probably didn’t need to tell you that!

Use your food processor to shred them (or a box shredder)

Perfect for a picnic or BBQ.  Oh, and making your own curry powder takes it to another level.  Click below in the recipe for a homemade curry powder recipe.

This salad is a combination of bright, beautiful flavors.

But the real star of this dish is Bugs Bunny’s favorite food of all time!
