Wife Jan loves carrot salad and it is her birthday dinner. This is my third attempt at making a carrot salad for a Uyghur meal—big plate chicken this time. Today, I am trying for a black vinegar vinaigrette.

Karl’s French Carrot Salad
I am making a French(-ish) roasted chicken for Sunday’s dinner. My original thought was to make a carrot soup, but daughter Miriam requested a carrot salad instead. Looking at French carrot salads on-line, I found that I did not have fresh parsley and Miriam cannot eat onions at the moment. I had dried chervil—A.K.A. French parsley—and I decided to substitute currents for the onions.

Karl’s Pecan Carrot Salad
Wife Jan is very fond of carrot salad. I am making barbecued chicken and Jan has requested a carrot salad to go with it. While the seasoning of the bird is “mostly” French cuisine, I decided to use a more Japanese dressing on the carrot salad. That’s called California Fusion.

Karl’s Carrot and Apple Salad
Last week, I made Uyghur bierocks for dinner. I made some Uyghur carrot salad to go with it. However, I got a bit heavy handed with the Indian chili powder. My salad was so spicy not even Eilene—who has a high tolerance for such things—could eat more than a few bites.

Karl’s Moroccan Carrot Salad
I am making Moroccan chicken tajine and I wanted a vegetable dish. While many tajine recipes include the vegetables in the stew, I wanted something on the side. Wife, Jan really likes carrot salads.

Karl’s Uyghur Heirloom Carrot Salad
For my birthday, I am making a variation of Uyghur Shashlik and Naan for dinner. Meat and bread call for salads and a traditional Xinjiang dish would be a carrot salad. The last time I made this I used large Asian carrots. Today, I decided to use the colorful heirloom carrots that have become common in California.

Karl’s Heirloom Carrot Salad with Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
Jan had a Stitching Guild luncheon on Saturday and most of the other people signed up to bring meat dishes. Jan sees her role as to provide a vegetarian option. Normally, I would add toasted pine nuts to my carrot salad, but one of her friends is deathly allergic to nuts.

Karl’s Lightly Pickled Carrots Salad with Spinach
I needed a salad for Christmas Eve dinner. Jan really loves carrot salad, but I wanted at least some green veg in the meal, so I added some baby spinach. I have made this salad before as a spinach salad, garnished with carrots. Here I reverse the proportions, a carrot salad garnished with some spinach.

Karl’s Lightly Pickled Carrots and Spinach Salad
Eilene requested carrot salad and some kind of green thing as the vegetable to go with the chili dogs for her birthday meal. I had bought a bottle of Champaign vinegar for another meal a few weeks ago and that seemed like a likely place to start. Thinking about what herbs and spices would compliment this rather expensive ingredient, I started grabbing bottles out of my spice rack. This is what I came up with. Giving the carrots a bit of time to pickle a bit also seemed like an obvious idea.
