Carrot Sandwiches (yes, really!)
Submitted by: Conny Granger
This is a recipe born out of the
1930's, when budgets were stretched to the breaking point, but still
makes a surprisingly good sandwich. Use good quality carrots as the
taste depends on them being fresh and juicy.
3 large carrots, peeled & coarsly
grated or shredded
1/4 cup minced walnuts (or pecans, or
toasted sunflower seeds, lightly chopped)
6 to 8 stuffed green olives, minced
(or dill pickles, but I like the olives better)
1 minced green onion, including top,
or 1 tbsp. minced regular white onion
dash salt, dash nutmeg (don't omit
the nutmeg, it really helps the flavour)
1/4 cup good quality mayonnaise, or
more, to taste
Mix everything well and spread
between slices of bread. For some reason, this really tastes best
on whole wheat rather than white bread.
You can add some lettuce, or alfalfa
sprouts though the original recipe didn't mention them.
