As readers of our site know already, we love simple recipes that can be given a twist — or taken in a new direction — with the inclusion of one or more of our sauces. So when PeppersAndMore.com reviewer Chilebrown offered up a a simple carrot salad that was given a twist by the inclusion of our sauce (in his great review of our Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost) we had to reach out to him for the recipe. As you can imagine, he was more than happy to share and we’ve posted that recipe for you below.
Of the recipe, and the sauce, Chilebrown stated the following: “This carrot salad was very tasty with its smoky pepper hint. It tamed and flavored the sweetness of the salad.” Give this one a try for your next pot luck or backyard barbecue.
Here’s what he did:
1 pound shredded carrots
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 or more tablespoons of Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost
Combine all ingredients and let marinade for at least 30 minutes before serving.
