1/4 cup dried cranberries, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes to plump
10 ounce package shredded carrots (about 4 cups)
2 navel oranges, zested, peeled and fruit segments removed (watch a video to learn how)
2 teaspoons ginger, grated
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
NOTE: use jarred ginger to save time
If desired, sprinkle on two tablespoons chopped nuts.
Bring dried fruit back to life when using it in recipes. Chefs call it maceration. Simply place the dried fruit in a bowl and cover with hot water. Allow the fruit to soften in the water for 10 minutes. Drain the liquid and proceed with recipe.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Stir before serving.
Serves 4: one cup per serving
