carrot salad sandwich recipe

Much too hot to cook? Try this carrot salad sandwich recipe for lunch or dinner. I created this recipe after having the most delicious sandwich at the Market Street Cafe in Burbank, California. I had to go home and duplicate it. This recipe is published in my cookbook, “Whole Food Goodness.”

Carrot Salad Sandwich recipe

Makes 2 sandwiches

1 small carrot, grated
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1–2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Vegan mayo
Alfalfa sprouts
Sliced tomato

Mix together grated carrot, pecans, red onion, maple syrup, and vegan mayo.

Spread two slices of whole grain bread with avocado and mustard. Pile the carrot mixture on one slice of bread and top with tomato and alfalfa sprouts.

Top with second slice of bread, or have it open-faced with a lettuce leaf or spinach. Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 sesame-flavored bread is excellent! However, for best flavor, this bread is best lightly toasted.
