Food Processor (or Mandolin) Winter Salad

Elaine Douglas


Like so many of my original recipes, this one started with me checking to see what is in my fridge. I also wanted to use my new Breville Food Processor.
This also qualifies as very healthy and very quick. If you want a creamier texture you could use more mayo, but I liked the crunchy texture of the salad.
Healthy food, tidy vegetable crisper, cat asleep by the fire, sunshine = a good day.

How to Make Food Processor (or Mandolin) Winter Salad


  1. Using a medium grater blade process the carrots, celery, broccoli, and unpeeled apple. (Don't use a very fine blade or you will have mush).
  2. Put the grated vegetables and apple in a medium sized bowl and add the lemon juice and the mayonnaise. Mix well and add the pecans and raisins (if using). Mix and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper if you wish (I added only 1 tsp.) Mix again and refrigerate for an hour to allow flavours to blend and develop.
