Carrot Tomato Salad

Written By Srimathi Mani on Saturday, March 2, 2013 | 7:53 PM

This is a salad that my Amma used to make for us all the time. It was simple, tasted delicious and she got us to help with grating. I make it often these days because of its simplicity and hence a perfect addition to the menu. Today at the farmers market, I found pink carrots. I thought they would be pink when grated, but to my surprise, the skin was pink while the interior was orange like a regular carrot. They were however super sweet and fresh. The farmer must have picked the produce early this morning to sell at the farmers market. For lunch, I made this salad as a part of our meal. It kind of leaves a clean and fresh taste in the mouth which I enjoy.

Cutting Board
Knife

Bowl


Ingredients:

Carrots - 3 medium grated
Red Onions - 1/4 thinly sliced
