This combination of carrots, garlic and mayonnaise is known as Health Salad in Russia, for Russians believe that carrots thicken the blood—an asset in their harsh northern climate. This is a nice change from the familiar sweet carrot salad with fruit.


  • ½ pound carrots, scraped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4


Grate the carrots. Pour the lemon juice over them, mixing well. Add the garlic to the carrots. Stir in the mayonnaise and salt to taste. Chill for several hours before serving, garnished with parsley.
