This is a very refreshing salad! I shredded the carrots, then minced the fennel & onions by hand, & since I'm NO FAN at all of mint [except for garnish] I left that out, & no one was the wiser for it [except me!]! I did use the honey & just a pinch of salt, AND, surprise, surprise, I increased the raisins to a rounded 1/2 cup! When all was said-and-done, the salad was GREAT! Thanks much for posting!
Made as directed, and even my carrot-averse DH loved it! This has all the right ingredients (do not skimp on the sea salt!) and is quick to make -- a perfect salad! Although it is DELICIOUS, I could have made it more photogenic by serving it in a bed of Boston, butter, or iceberg lettuce. Otherwise, you'd see my photo! :) Thanks, Chef at Heart! Made for PRMR.
This is a wonderful and super easy refreshing slaw salad. I used half and half for the table cream and also omitted the mint for personal preference. I chilled it for only 1 hour and it was perfect. A definite keeper, we'll be making this again. :)
