I would like to present you a simple salad recipe from my own childhood times. There has not ever been a complete holiday table in our house without this salad. I recall myself a little girl helping my mom to peel garlic and chop walnuts, and later, it has become my own dish I cooked preparing for the arrival of guests.
Today, many years since, this salad is very popular with my family. It is quick to be cooked and it does not stay long. Another point of note – garlic is a valuable ingredient, which is especially important during winter months. Carrots and walnuts make this salad an excellent side for meat dishes adding special piquancy to the taste of meat. It is perfect for someone who does not like to spend much time in the kitchen and wants to make quick, tasty and simple vitamin-rich carrot salad.
Try this recipe and I can assure you – you’ll love it!
