Thai Carrot Peanut Salad

We are still pulling carrots directly from the earth.  Noel planted beets and carrots in one of his raised beds in August.  When cold weather set in, he covered the plants with ag fabric, and put a mini hoop house over the entire bed, covered with clear poly.  The ground in the garden outside the tunnel is already frosted, but Noel was able to harvest these carrots from still soft soil by hand.

Other than eating the deliciously sweet carrots after a quick wash in water we love the ‘Thai Carrot Salad with Peanuts’ recipe by Bettina Vitell from her book, A Taste of Heaven and Earth.

Here’s a link to her recipe.  Thai Carrot Salad with Peanuts

I pretty much make it as is, but usually use a fresh or frozen serano pepper in place of the dried red chili flakes.  We have yet to have fresh mint at the right time for garnish, but we usually have cilantro on hand.

Give it a try, it’s such a refreshing and clean tasting salad.
