Use all organic ingredients, and ensure any dried spices are labeled certified gluten free, and any packaged items are labeled gluten free, including the vinegar and mustard.

1 to 2 Carrots, grated (3 cups grated)
1/4 cup Onions, finely diced
1 stalk Celery, finely diced (1/4 cup diced)
3 to 4 Celery leaves, chopped (1 to 2 tablespoons chopped)
1 Apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup Raisins or dried cranberries (optional)
1/4 cup Pecans or walnuts, broken into small chunks (optional)
3 tablespoons Olive or avocado oil, extra virgin
3 tablespoons Apple cider or white wine vinegar (gluten free)
1 teaspoon Homemade Yellow Mustard or Homemade Dijon Mustard (gluten free)
1 Lime, juice of (1 to 2 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon Honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon Sea salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon Fresh ground black pepper, or to taste
  • Don't cut up the apple until right before it is added, so it doesn't turn brown. It is the last item added.
  • Grate carrots with a grater. Alternatively, you can cut them into very fine julienne slices. Chop onions, celery and celery leaves. Combine in a large bowl to mix. Add raisins and nuts, if using, and toss into salad.
  • Juice the lime. In a small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, lime juice, salt and pepper and blend.
  • Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat well. Peel, core and chop up the apple, and immediately add the apple to the salad and toss to coat with dressing.
  • This salad will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days, in a sealed container.

Serve and enjoy!
