Spicy carrot salad

Carrots 1lb
Ground coriander seed 1-2 tsp
Garlic 2-3 cloves
Salt .5-1 tsp
Olive oil 4-6 tbsp
Lemon few drops

I slice the carrots with a mandoline slicer similar to this with a medium knife attachment. Then I grind the coriander seed (I used to use already ground one, but it's not as aromatic), salt it, crush garlic and add lemon. Then I heat up the oil and pour it over, mix let it stand overnight.

Use any bagged tossed salad, cut into smaller bite sized pieces:
Add these ingredients:
cubed tomato
thinly sliced marinated grilled pork, chilled or warm
sunflower seeds
real bacon bits
really thin La Choy chinese noodles
shredded cheddar cheese
peeled cucumber slices for plate garnish

Toss with:
Kraft Cucumber Ranch dressing, add just enough to barely coat the salad ingredients.

1/3 bottle T. Marzetti original coleslaw dressing (in produce dept.)
1 cup Private Selection shredded broccoli slaw
1 cup Private Selection shredded carrots
1 cucumber, seeded and sliced really thin

mix it all together and marinate overnight or for at least 2 hours

I added chunks of apple and pineapple tidbits right before serving.

So colorful!
