Aunt Dorothy's Marinated Carrot Salad

Rating: 4.54 stars
This has been a family favorite for years. The key to this recipe is not overcooking the carrots and allowing the entire salad to marinate for at least 12 hours. For a spectacular presentation when serving, garnish the top with rings of each color of bell pepper and rings of onion. Serve alone or over a bed of lettuce.

Jicama, Carrot, and Green Apple Slaw

Rating: 3.79 stars
Flavorful take on an old bbq standby. Other seasonings can be added as well, depending on preference. I find that chili powder adds a nice kick. Serve right after tossing if you prefer a nice crunchy slaw or let marinade in the fridge for an hour before dishing up. Great with grilled veggies, Mexican style corn on the cob, and smoked chicken breast.

Thai Carrot Salad

Rating: 4.86 stars
I got this recipe from the cook at my favorite Thai restaurant in Cincinnati. His carrot salad was one of his most popular salads/appetizers, people would buy multiple orders to go so they could bring this as a take along dish to an event. This is even better made a day ahead.

This carrot salad looks absolutely gorgeous and has a sweet, subtle flavor. It's hard to believe anything this simple can be so delicious. Shaving the carrots is a little messy, I admit, but the dish is well worth it.

Russian Carrot Salad (Korean-Style)

Rating: 4.31 stars

Russians call it 'Korean Carrot Salad,' but it is so absolutely ubiquitous in Russia that if they didn't originally own it, they certainly do now. Coriander provides primary flavor; cayenne provides the heat. To get it right, you MUST use a mandoline to julienne the carrots into long, thin strands like spaghetti. To save time, buy them already julienned at the grocery store. This dish is best after it has marinated for 24 hours, but is fine after only 4 or 5 hours.
