Forever Nigella #5 Salad Days

I've missed a couple of Forever Nigella challenges, but I'm back for the salad event which is being hosted by Belleau Kitchen  for Maison Cupcake. Not that we are having salad weather here,  as I look out the window all I can see is rain streaming down the window, it's grey and cold too, more like autumn.

So I had a look through my Nigella books and decided on a recipe which I've looked at a few times but never quite got round to.   It's in 'Forever Summer' and is the 'Rainbow Room's Carrot and Peanut Salad'. 

Nigella's carrots are cut much more roughly, but I only have a fine microplane grater, so it had to do.  I don't normally have peanuts in the house (because I will just eat them!) but I bought some of Tesco's value peanuts and they were very good and not very expensive.  Other than that, it's just a bit of dressing, I used the last of my Fig vinegar that I got on holiday last June, the fruity flavour worked really well with this salad, which I ate for my lunch.  You only need a couple of drops of oil as the oiliness of the peanuts works really well with the vinegar.  Luckily for everyone, Nigella has posted this recipe on her website HERE.

I've often looked at that salad and wanted to make it - my mother once said that the definition of self-control was the ability to eat just one peanut!

I love this recipe but haven't made it for a few years, had forgotten about it. Thanks for joining in with this month's Forever Nigella and reminding me!

Woops, that 'Stuff' comment is actually from me - was using husband's iPhone!

This takes me back to a restaurant in Edinburgh that used to serve this for parties and they added raisins. I can remember the flavour yet! You have inspired me to rekindle that taste. Looks so fresh and change for salads.

I'm the same, especially with cashew nuts! That looks very nice Janice :) looking out the window right now, though, I'd probably have it as a starter before a big, hearty stew haha! :)
