{July 16, 2010}   Carrot Salad Boost

I just made this two days in a row: the first time with chicken, the second time replacing the chicken with coconut meat. Both times were delicious, slightly sweet, refreshing… and a nice energy boost!

Ingredients for 1 (main course) or 2 (appetizer):
1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1/3 cup shredded cooked (not fried) chicken breasts or 1/3 cup coconut meat
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon shredded fresh ginger
1 teaspoon ginseng honey (or 1 teaspoon honey with a pinch of powdered ginseng)
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch clove
1 pinch salt

At the bottom of a bowl, whisk honey, ginger, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, cinnamon, close, salt, chili and turmeric together. Add, cucumber, carrots and either chicken or coconut meat. Place covered in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Stir a little and serve nice and cold!
