My dad enjoyed carrot raisin salad. I remember watching Mom preparing her not quite vegan Carrot Salad Recipe: peeling the carrots by hand at the sink; plumping the raisins and draining them; adding in the salad dressing and stirring it all together. Besides snacking on raw carrots and a box of raisins, one of my favorite things as a child was playing waitress and serving his bowl of orange sunshine to him at his orange recliner. Not only was it the 70s, he probably had gotten a good deal on orange Naugahyde. As I was mulling about what recipes you might enjoy today, that memory of Dad came up, thus our menu du jour is Gluten Free Vegan Carrot Salad Recipes.
Carrot Nutrition Facts
According to the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, “there are about 6 to 8 medium carrots in 1 pound. One medium carrot is about ½ cup of chopped carrots. For a 2,000-calorie diet, the daily recommendation is about 2 ½ cups of vegetables. ½ cup of carrots provides more than one day’s worth of vitamin A.” The National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that “vitamin A is involved in immune function, vision, reproduction and cellular communication. Vitamin A also plays a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs.” So there you have it. Our bodies heart carrots. Bon appetit!
