This is a carrot salad recipe to HAVE! It’s creamy, tender and flavorful! Grated carrots are tossed  in a garlicky mayonnaise with plump peas & mushrooms. A staple carrot salad recipe that I keep.

It’ goes so well with plov (rice pilaf) and can easily accompany other meals. I brought this carrot salad to a lunch gathering and got raves from people, you can bet I ended up writing down the recipe to share with the ladies. The garlic gives this salad a nice kick and the mayonnaise brings this tender salad together. This carrot salad comes from my mom and it’s one to try, especially if you need to change up your salad rotation!
