Question about your Carrot salad recipe

Under the ingredients, you described the carrots as shredded and then in the body of the recipe, you call them grated.  What is a shredded carrot and for this recipe, which method do you prefer?    Thanks,  Marlyn

Hi Marlyn

Thanks for alerting me to this. I changed the recipe to reflect that you can either shred or grate the carrots. I always use the shredder blade on my food processor (too much trouble to hand grate). Once, after I shredded the carrots, I also chopped them with the “S” blade so that they looked grated (this is something I do when I make potato pancakes, btw). Either way they taste terrific. I take the easy way out now and just use the shredding blade.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can hand grate or chop finely in a blender.
