  1. Step 1

    Peel the carrots, cucumber and apple. Use a grater to coarsely grate the carrot, cucumber and apple. (Alternatively, carefully use a mandolin or sharp knife to finely shred.) Place the carrot, cucumber and apple in a large bowl and toss to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Add 1/4 cup (60ml) orange juice and 2 tbs lemon juice to the carrot mixture in the bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Step 3

    Divide salad among serving bowls. Sprinkle with orange zest and lemon zest. Serve with orange wedges.

    Add some seeds

    For extra crunch and texture, try adding some sunflower seeds or pepitas (pumpkin seeds) to the salad.

    Jessica’s salad tips

    Go large “Use the biggest carrots you can find – they’re easier to grate.”

    Mix it up “Keep the carrots as the base but experiment with all the other ingredients. Swap the apple for pear, replace cucumber with raw zucchini, try it with lime instead of lemon and use apple juice rather than orange juice.”
