In my previous post I mentioned that I was working on some summer time recipes. This is one of them. When the weather is hot outside I love easy and no-cook recipes. This is a nice dish to take on the go, for a picnic or outside party as it does not have any mayonnaise and can sit out for a while.
This recipe came about when I was really wanting salad one night, but was out of lettuce. I did have a bag of grated carrots in the fridge. I started looking through my pantry, putting things into a bowl and Wallah!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes

1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons canola oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt

Place the carrots, nuts, cranberries and scallions into a large bowl.
Dissolve the honey and salt into the vinegar in a smaller bowl. Add the pepper and whisk in the canola oil.
Add the dressing to the carrot mixture and mix well.
