Carrot Cranberry Salad
1/4 cup pecan, pieces
3 cups carrots, grated ((about 3 medium carrots)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
4 cups boiling water
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
juice of 2 oranges
Zest of 1 orange
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
Next, drain off hot water with a colander and rinse with cold water allowing water to drain completely.
The purpose of the boiling water is to soften a bit the carrots and rehydrate the cranberries so the juices and the flavor of the citrus zests and ginger will marinate with the shredded carrot more easily.
Place the shredded carrot and cranberries into a large bowl. Next, add the ginger, citrus zests and juices and mix until well incorporated.
Place some plastic wrap over the bowl and put into the refrigerator and allow to chill, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove from refrigerator and mix in the pecan pieces.
