Carrot and Apple Salad

This is an easy, light and refreshing side salad that takes no time to prepare. The amount of sugar you add to the dish (if any) will depend on the tartness of the apples. Recipe serves 4-6.


2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 cups grated apple (approximately 4 apples)
2 cups grated carrots
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons currants
Salt to taste
2-3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
Mint leaves


1. Combine the lemon and orange juice and place in a bowl.
2. Grate the apples into the juices to prevent them turning brown.
3. Add the remaining ingredients and toss.
4. Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
