Carrot and Apple Salad

I am heartbroken. My love affair with blueberries has ended.
Today I went to the shops to stock up on blueberries, only for like the third time this week, and they were gone.
All gone. Blueberry season is over. Just as I was thinking of more ways to eat these berries of the gods.

But one has to move on. It's carrot season now, let's embrace it!!

And carrots love apples. I have already proved this with my carrot muffin tops.

But this is a whole different thing.

We are uniting the fruit and the vegetable in a refreshing blueberry-season-is-over/end-of-summer salad.
It's crunchy, it's sweet, it's sour, and it's daaang healthy.

Carrot Apple Salad (makes 1 portion)
1 carrot
1 apple
1 tbsp raisins
dijon mustard
white wine vinegar

Chop the carrot and apple in any shape you like.
Add the toppings. I only used raisins, but cranberries, sunflower seeds or nuts would surely be nice as well.
Combine the mustard, honey, vinegar (any other white vinegar would work as well), slat and parlsey to a dressing. Taste it to make it as sweet or vinegary as you like it.


  1. I picked up blueberries at the farmer's market yesterday and was told it's the last week. I'm mourning the beautiful berries :(

    This salad looks lovely!

    1. Sad times :( But we can already look forward to next year!! :D
      Hope you make something truly awesome out of the blueberries you got :)

  2. I also think it's a shame that the blueberry season comes to an end.
    But you have a great replacement gezaubert.it looks very tasty.

    1. Vielen lieben Dank Martina :) Ich hab mir Muehe gegeben, das Herbst-Obst und Gemuese soll doch genauso geschaetzt werden :)

  3. It's sad to see the summer berries go, but carrot and apple is a great mix! Your salad looks colorful and delicious.
