Koreiskaya Morkovka: Russian Carrot Salad

We are excited to be starting something new in 2021: sharing recipes from Ankarsrum users who are home cooks, small food business owners, or even recipes from our own friends and family, adapted to make with the Ankarsrum mixer and/or attachments.  We love to see what everyone makes in their kitchens with the Ankarsrum, and are delighted to be able to share it on this site.

From AnkarsrumUSA recipe developer, Carmi Adams:

I want to first and foremost give a shoutout to a Facebook group called Ankarsrum Mixer Fans – USA.  This group is not affiliated with us, but is a wealth of information for Ankarsrum users, and many on the group have submitted recipes to be shared this year.  There are people all around the world in the group, sharing ideas, recipes, asking and answering baking/cooking questions.  Very helpful and drama free.

This first recipe actually comes from my sister’s sister-in-law, Sveta.  My sister got married back in 2009 and her husband was originally from Moldova.  His family and family friends spent hours in the small church kitchen the day before and day of the wedding preparing the most extraordinary feast of traditional Eastern European food.  It was amazing, and I still think about a lot of those dishes, including this carrot salad.

Now traditionally, this dish is made with a madoline to cut the carrots.  But I often hear people saying how much the Ankarsrum mixer and its attachments have helped them make family recipes more often.  Whether its because they can’t physically do everything by hand anymore, or maybe they don’t have the time to, having the help of a machine can actually keep those family memories and tastes alive.

Sveta’s wooden mandoline.

 

Since we are utilizing the grater attachment to cut the carrots, this dish comes together quickly and can easily be thrown together in the morning to serve at lunch or dinner.

Minced garlic, salt, grated carrots.

 

Besides the carrots, just a few other ingredients are needed.  One of them is this spice packet.  Since the grocery stores in my area did not carry it, my sister helped me find it online here.  There is also a spicy version.

Obviously the one with the pepper is the spicy one.

 

The spice packet gets heated up with a little oil and vinegar to make a hot dressing which is then poured over the carrots.

This mixture will then sit in the fridge for at least 3-5 hours before serving.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this recipe.  Stay tuned for more recipes from other kitchens this year, and we hope you enjoy cooking and baking something new.
