Spiced Carrot Salad with Pumpkin Seeds

Are you that annoying person in class munching on carrots? Crunch, crunching away while the prof is lecturing.Chopping your jaw down on those orange nubbins? Crunch crunch crunch.... crunch... Please just stop, I can't hear what the prof is saying...I can hear inbetween crunches.... I can't hear my friend next to me.... I can't even hear my own thoughts!!!!!!! CRUNCH CRUNCH.

Not you? Okay... that is totally me. I admit I am a carrot munch cruncher. BUT I know I am not alone.

But need a break from your crunching? Make a carrot salad instead where the crunch factor is cut down to minimum.

Spiced Carrot Salad with Pumpkin Seeds
Time: 10 mins.                 CPS: $0.75                      L of D: Undergraduate

  • 2 large Carrots Shredded (I used my leftover heirloom carrots from this recipe )
  • 1/4 cup of Pumpkin Seeds toasted (look here on how to toast nuts) you can use any crunchy nut
  • 1 Tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of Paprika
  • 1 Tsp of Honey (omit if you like salads a little more acidy)
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (OPTIONAL!)
  • 1 Tsp of Olive Oil
Shred carrots. Toast your nuts.

Mix all other ingrediants in a bowl. Add carrot and nuts.

DONE. Wowzers.


  1. This looks great! I am definitely there with you as a carrot muncher, although I shamefully admit I bring my carrots with me to the library...probably even more annoying haha.

  2. I'm always looking for a different type of salad to make and this one looks really easy. I'll definitely give it a shot!

  3. You're hilarious. I annoy my b/f SO much with my carrot eating. He will like this version much better for his ear's sake :-)

    I make carrot muffins with pumpkin seeds on top so I know I would love this combo!
