Always a favorite when served as a side and believe it or not guests like it as an appetizer – all by itself – as a starter before other things are served  *  Take a hand shredder and shred one carrot for each person you anticipate serving  *  Using the same hand shredder – prepare a cored and peeled apple – 1/2 apple for each person  *  immediately add 2 or 3 Tbsp of lemon juice to cover the apple  *  add enough raisins to make it interesting  *  1/2 tsp salt  *  moisten with 3 Tbsp of coconut milk  *  chill and serve  *  If you would like to try something new – add some coconut shreds to the salad for a Shredded Coconut Carrot Salad  *  For this mixture it is always best to serve what has been prepared  *  It just doesn’t save well
