Carrot-Raisin Salad

This carrot-raisin salad is both tangy and sweet, thanks to the combination of lemon juice, pineapple and raisins; carrots bring color and crunch. Letting the salad sit at room temperature for 30 minutes is a great way to help the flavors intensify.

Carrot-Peanut Noodle Salad

Rating: 4 stars 2
This crunchy salad is made with spiralized carrots instead of noodles. Make sure to use unrefined peanut oil, which is way more flavorful than its refined counterpart and is one of the trio of peanutty ingredients that makes this simple salad stand out. Look for it with other specialty oils or in the Asian section of your grocery store.

Sesame-Honey Carrot Ribbon Salad

A simple vegetable peeler turns carrots into beautifully thin strips in this healthy vegetable side dish recipe. If you have a spiralizer, you can go for an artful tangle instead. Serve with miso-glazed fish or tofu.

Kohlrabi & Carrot Salad with Cheddar

Kohlrabi's slightly sweet, broccoli-stem-like flavor adds excellent crunch to this salad. Either the green- or purple-skinned variety will work for this jazzed-up carrot salad recipe.

Shredded Carrot Salad with Spiced Orange Dressing

This shredded carrot salad makes a delicious side dish. Cinnamon provides spice in the dressing, while lemon juice offers a little tanginess to balance the flavors. You can make this salad up to 4 hours ahead—any longer and the carrots will begin to lose their crunch. If you have a food processor, use it to speed up the process of grating the carrots.
