Carrot & Coconut Salad | Oil Free Cooking
This is the most easy and simple salad recipe which taste wonderful. I learnt this from my sister’s friends, this was one recipe that she would make often. Fresh juicy carrot along with coconut and hint of lemon makes this salad light and refreshing. I added less coconut but you should add as in recipe and it’s taste delicious, you can also add tempering to this salad but normally I doesn’t do that unless it’s made for guests. This can be done in jiffy and goes well with almost any thing but perfect with rasam, sambar rice or any masala side dish, also good for lunch box and for kids. Try this and you are sure going to love it.
