Alice’s Winter Sunset Salad Recipe

Alice’s Winter Sunset Salad Recipe

Here is the perfect simple salad for a winter’s night, sweet enough to delight children, healthful enough to please you, and cheery and colorful enough for everyone.

Carrots, fresh parsley, and a simple garlic vinaigrette make such sweet music, tucked up in a salad bowl together! The color is reminiscent of the brilliant winter sunset, and the antioxidant beta carotene of the main ingredient–as well as the germ-busting power of garlic–will help to keep you and your family healthy in the new year.


3 large carrots
1/2 bunch fresh parsley leaves, stems removed
1/2 clove garlic
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons light olive oil
Salt to taste

1. Peel the carrots and grate them into a salad bowl.

2. Wash and dry the parsley leaves, then chop. Add to carrots.

3. Peel the garlic clove and use the tines of a fork to make a garlic puree. In a small bowl, mix garlic puree, vinegar, and olive oil together, whisking to combine.

4. Add vinaigrette to carrot mixture in bowl, adding salt to taste, and mix thoroughly.

Serves 4.
