This salad is typical of fondas. Whenever someone goes to a Mexican fonda is highly probable that this salad will be seen served on the table, ready to be enjoyed.
The carrot salad with cream is simple since it only has grated carrot, raisins and diced apple. But the cream that is prepared to season the salad is fantastic. It really gives another dimension to the whole dish – you have to taste it.
This salad can be served as appetizer or accompanying a main course of your choice, specially if it is a dish with pork.
