Carrot & Coconut Salad

Good Morning!

The last two Saturdays I went to Mr. Natural on the East Side, here in Austin, and experienced the deliciousness of this salad.  I got a pretty good idea of the simplicity of the ingredients after devouring a decent portion of it.

This morning I woke up with the sun shining bright and started shredding carrots to come up with something similar.  Behold! (Measurements are estimates, make it to your liking!)

Carrot and Coconut Salad

  • 1 pound carrots, shred ’em
  • 1 pound pineapple (I couldn’t find any fresh, so I had to use a can, in its own juice/no sugar added)
  • 1/8 pound shredded coconut (about 1/4 -1/3 C)
  • 1/4 pound raisins (I’m thinking grapes would also be delicious!)
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Splash of orange/mango juice (We just happened to have this in the fridge)

Mix it all up in a bowl, go on a nature walk and enjoy at the park while taking in the sun.
