Directions Carrot Apple Salad with Oranges and Walnuts:
Wash, peel and cut the ends off the carrots. Grate with a food processor or grater and put into your salad bowl.
Wash the lettuce and add to the carrots.
Wash the apple and cut into small pieces. (peel the apple before you cut into pieces if you don’t like the peel, but remember that the peel has the most vitamins in it)
Zest one of the oranges and set aside for now in a small glass. Peel anything that’s left on this orange and peel the other orange. Cut into pieces about the same size as the apple.
Stir together the oil, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Peel the ginger and grate it into the oil mixture as well as the juice of the lemon. Also add the orange zest you had set aside and mix everything together well – dressing is finished.
Add the dressing to the salad and mix well. When serving, add the chopped walnuts.
