Carrot Dill Salad

carrot-dill-salad

This carrot dill salad is based on one of my favorite sides from Yalla in Culver City. It’s the perfect side of freshness to a heavy meat dish, and it’s really simple to make. I prefer to make it ahead of time so the carrots and raisins have time to soak up the dressing and soften a bit. The raisins, carrots, and honey all lend this dish a surprising sweetness, so even the pickiest of eaters will be happy for an extra serving. This can easily be transported to a BBQ or serve it with brunch on Easter morning.
