Carrot Slaw

Standout Carrot Slaw

Carrot slaw is underrated. Crunchy, tangy, sweet AND full of fiber and nutrients, this side dish has it all. I keep a handful of “keeper” recipes on hand for picnics, potlucks, barbecues and of all of them, everyone asks for this recipe. Mayo-based fresh salads are a dime a dozen, which makes carrot slaw a standout.

This is also not your average carrot slaw. It’s leveled up with all the extras, like coconut flakes, cashews (or sesame seeds) and lime juice. It’s a simple recipe but it surprises everyone with how balanced, and exquisitely complex it tastes. TIP: the longer it sits, the more delicious it gets.

Meal Prep Carrot Side

This fresh carrot slaw can be made several days in advance, making my meal prep dreams come true. It can be used as a side, to top fish tacos or traditional lettuce salads, over quinoa or in grain bowls — the options are endless.

For some, this might be a nostalgic reminder of a carrot slaw grandma used to make, and for others it might mimic the delicious carrot salad served in France. For me, it’s a bit of both — comforting and full of culinary satisfaction.
