Indian Spiced Raw Carrot Salad

Easy as!
I thought I would jump back in with some quick fresh and fast recipes!

I've changed a few things in the way I eat! The recipes I'll be posting for the next little while are based on time! I dont have much of it at the moment. 

Im sure you all are in the same boat. I'm trying to live with as much raw in my life as I can! So here is the first 5 minute meal I made tonight for you! I ate this with blackened salmon but didn't have time to post the salmon, but the salad is a stunner!


1/2 one Large Red Onion (sliced)
5 Large Organic Carrots (spiraled, Julianne, or even grated)
4 springs of Fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)
1 teaspoon Fresh ginger (grated finely)
Flesh of 1 young coconut (drink the water, yum!)
3 tsp Raw Honey
2 tbsp Cold pressed Olive Oil
1/2 cup Organic Raisins 
1/2 Raw Almonds (I slivered mine by hand)
1 tsp Mild Curry powder
1 tsp Ground Coriander
1 tsp Ground Cumin 
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

Scrape the flesh out of your coconut using the back of a large spoon!

Place the coconut flesh, salt, ground spices, honey and Olive oil in a blender and blitz until smooth and creamy

Grate, peel, spiral, julianne your carrot, add it to a bowl with your raisins, slivered almonds and red onion. Fold your sauce through and lastly your roughly chopped cilantro. 


There you have it! A five minute salad that will impress your taste buds and everyone! 
This Salad garnishes it self. It would accompany almost anything or just eat the bowl to your self! 

Thanks guys, and Remember always play with your food ;)
