Vegan Sesame Dressing Carrot & Feta Salad

Vegan Sesame Dressing Carrot & Feta Salad

Jan 11, 2023

Add flavour to your veges with this delicious sesame carrot salad. The sesame oil adds a nuttiness, the yuzu (or lemon) and vinegar add a tangy-ness, sultanas add a nice bit of texture and delicious chunks of plant based feta adds creaminess. This will fast become one of you go-to salads for the summer, I know it's one of mine!

vegan carrot & feta salad

1/4 cup toasted pinenuts
1/4 cup sultanas
1/4 cup dried cranberries
4 carrots, washed and grated
120g vegan feta 
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
Fresh mint or basil

50ml sesame oil
3/4 tbsp yuzu
1/2 tbsp sugar
25ml olive oil
1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar

  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the dressing in a jug and whisk until thoroughly combined - set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add the carrot, sultanas, dried cranberries, feta and toss until evenly distributed. Add the dressing and mix again.
  3. Sprinkle the toasted pinenuts, toasted sesame seeds and fresh herbs. 
  4. Store covered in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavours develop - you can eat it straight away but I think it tastes better refrigerated!
