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 Uyghur Carrot Salad III

Karl’s Coca-Cola glazed Roasted Carrots
I was making a very meat heavy meal with Coca-cola pork and I wanted to work in more vegetables. I added shredded cabbage to my potato salad, but I wanted one more dish. While I am not fond of cooked carrots, my family loves them. Glazing the carrots with the pork’s cola sauce seemed a reasonable next step.

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 Hijiki No Nimono (Hijiki and Carrot Salad)
I had decided to make a Japanese feast this Sunday. Miriam had requested that it be a vegetable forward and a low sugar meal. Japanese dishes seem to have a lot of added sugar, but I could work with that. I found a site with a list of nine Japanese vegetables dishes to go with my main dish of chicken yakitori.

Karl’s Japanese Style Carrot Soup
Adapted from a Smitten Kitchen recipe and a Just Bento recipe
Once again, Eilene is having friends over. I decided I would make chicken teriyaki and rice. I wanted to make a side dish, but it was too late to make pickles. I have been making blended soups lately, so I thought I would make a carrot soup with an Asian twist.

Karl’s Carrot and Red Lentil Dhal
Just Miriam is joining us for dinner this Sunday, Chris is off to New York for the week. She is on the Atkins diet, so I still have to adapt my cooking to her desires. She is entering Phase two, so I thought I would make a dhal to go with my chicken curry and palak paneer.

Karl’s New England Boiled Dinner (a.k.a. Corned Beef and Cabbage)
Chris requested New England Boiled Dinner for his birthday. According to Wikipedia: This is a “traditional New England meal, consisting of corned beef, or a smoked “picnic ham” shoulder, with cabbage and added vegetable items, often including potato, rutabaga, parsnip, carrot, white turnip and onion.” This is one of the original American “one pot meals.”
