Instructions

  • If your food processor has a shredding blade - this is the quickest way. Simply wash and cut the ends of the carrots and shred away! Or get old school and grate them by hand :P
  • Place shredded carrots in a large bowl. Next add raisins, all seeds and chopped fresh cilantro, mix well. Set aside.
  • In a blender combine all of the dressing ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour over the shredded carrots and mix until fully coated.
  • Enjoy right away or place in the fridge for couple hours to enhance the flavours.
