Recipe by  

Marinated Carrot Salad takes a few minutes to prepare and needs to stand overnight but is perfect if you want something a bit different to add to your salads. You can make a full portion for six people even if you are unlikely to eat it all at once, since it will keep for two or three days if covered and kept in a fridge.

How to Cook Marinated Carrot Salad

  1. Peel and crush (mince) the garlic. Make the marinade first by putting all the ingredients into a pan and bringing to the boil. Scrape the carrots, remove the 'top and tails' then cut them into quarters lengthways. Add these to the marinade and cook gently for 15 minutes or until the carrots are just tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little.
  2. Using a sieve (strainer), strain the mixture to separate the carrots from the liquid (reserve the liquid!). Place the carrots in a deep serving dish and discard all remaining solid ingredients. Stir the mustard into the reserved liquid and pour this over the carrots. Leave the whole dish in the fridge overnight to marinate. Remove the carrots and serve with a cold platter of meats.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If your carrots are 'intact' (with the leaves) trim the root and leaves from the carrot but leave ½" (1cm) of leaf stalk attached. The carrots will look nicer when served.

This is a perfect salad to take to a "carry in". I have made this numerous time for family gatherings too. There is nothing to worry about if it is a hot day. I've had many requests for the recipe so I know I'm not the only one who thinks it is keeper.

I love this salad. I make it just as written. The sauce is meant to be a marinade, of course, not a dressing! I serve it with a slotted spoon and it's the perfect addition to a summer barbeque. Love this type of salad ... you can make a little or make a lot - depending on what the need is for. It's refreshing for summer get togethers.

In this dish, the slightly sweet and salty taste of the bacon compliments nicely the more savoury taste of the leaks. It's a great accompaniment.
