Last night, I got a craving for that divine carrot salad they serve at Luby’s (“Chez Luby,” we call it). Fortunately, we had a lovely bunch of French carrots from our Greenling Local Box. Unfortunately, we also have the Luby’s cookbook. At Chez Luby, we learned, the carrot salad contains both canned pineapple (which we didn’t have on-hand) and powdered sugar (which just seems excessive). So I improvised. I mixed a bit of grapeseed-oil Vegenaise (LOVE this stuff), some Hellmann’s mayo, a handful of dried currants, one of chopped walnuts, and a sprinkling of salt with our grated carrots. It totally hit the spot.
How are you eating your Local Box carrots?
