Leftover Salad

I found this on the Internet, probably on someone's blog. It's attached to the document for carrot cake, so it must have been intended as another use for grated carrots. But look at it closely:

Leftover Carrot Salad
Grated Carrots
Orange chunks (cut orange in half and scoopr sections out with a knife, like grapefruit)
Juice from scooped oranges
Combine above. Refrigerate for an hour or a day, and serve as side dish or dessert.

I think this is the revenge I get for posting without amounts last week. Well, here's what I did with it.

Leftover carrot/orange salad
3 cups grated carrots (we always have carrots; we have rabbits)
2 cups orange chunks (i wish I hadn't added the juice; they were very juicy oranges)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup craisins or dried cranberries
1 teaspoon sugar (the oranges were a little bland, getting old)

Combine all ingredients. Let sit in refrigerator overnight. Serve as a side salad. Mmm. Delicious and fresh tasting -- Just right for a winter day.

That sounds like a great salad, I like to make salads for most of my suppers.
