There are many recipe versions for this salad, most of them use sugared or candied pecans which are totally NOT needed. Our recipe has raw pecans instead and it tastes so much better :)
5 carrots - peeled and cut into thin sticks
2 cups sliced celery stalks (you could also add celery leaves)
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 green chili pepper - sliced (optional)
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
Salt and pepper to taste
Freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon
1-2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 tablespoons raw pecans
Place carrots, celery, parsley, chili and cranberries in a bowl.
Add spices, lemon, honey and olive oil.
Mix and sprinkle pecans on top.
Tastes best when fresh!
