Morot-och Russin Sallad/Swedish Carrot & Raisin Salad

Carrot is one of  the Sweden’s most popular vegetables, obviously carrot have their own place in most of their menus. Every little coffee shop serves a slice of carrot cake which is a must in their menu card.If you are eating out in Sweden, lunch is particularly good value as most restaurants will include a serve - yourself salad bar where you can eat as much salad as you want. Sometimes prepared with just a simple dressing, or perhaps mixed with kale, spinach, this carrot salad can be prepared easily with raisins. The crunchniess of the carrots make this salad more interesting and the addition of  sweet golden raisin gives a fabulous sweetness. Of course, the recipe is really pretty international, so Swedish peoples are not alone in liking it.

Carrots and raisins are an interesting combo and this salad is as simple as it could get. Besides serving it as a side dish, this can even substitute as a quick snack as well.
