This traditional Danish dish is a super simple spin on raw carrots. Whip up a bowl for dinner parties, backyard barbeques, eat is as a snack, or pack some in a lunchbox. This budget-friendly, healthy, and quick dish is a trifecta of culinary wonders.


  1. Wash and peel the carrots.
  2. Grate the carrots into a bowl.
  3. Squeeze the entire lemon and pour over the carrots.
  4. Then, sprinkle on the sugar.
  5. If you'd like, add the raisins or pumpkin seeds. (Another option is to serve these in separate bowls on the side so guests can add themselves.)
  6. Toss to coat.
  7. Let the carrots sit in the refrigerator for a few hours until they are cold and have absorbed the lemon juice and sugar, then you're ready to enjoy!
