This is an interesting salad. The ginger and lemon gives it a just a bit of kick; the raisins add sweetness. The carrots add crunch. The peanuts are reminiscent of many Thai dishes.
We went easy on the seasoning. You may wish to add a little more lemon and ginger.
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon finely ground fresh ginger
2 cups matchstick carrots
2/3 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
salt and pepper
3/4 cup chopped peanuts
- Make the dressing by mixing the lemon juice, mayonnaise, sugar, and fresh ginger together until the sugar has dissolved.
- Stir in the carrots and sprouts. Add the raisins and cilantro. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Place servings on salad plates. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Serve chilled.
