Carrot Salad

Image and Recipe idea courtesy of The Nourishing Gourmet

I was in the kitchen pondering what I could make for dinner when all of a sudden I had a brilliant idea. I am not going to tell you the full scope of this idea but I will tell you that this amazing recipe is what goes on top of it, you’ll just have to come back to find out.

Carrot Slaw is what I originally wanted to put on top of my idea but after a few minutes of searching on Google I discovered that the worlds idea of Carrot Slaw involves a LOT of mayonnaise or sour cream and that’s not the direction I wanted to go in. I wanted something vinegary, sharp, and that had a bite to it so it could stand up to the main dish I planned on pairing it with. After altering my search criteria I stumbled upon the joy that is carrot salad and this amazing recipe which I fell in love with.

Big and Bold Taco Chicken Pizza and Guacamole

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! Or as my friends call today; “Revenge of the 5th!” Just Google it. 

I was so excited when I was contacted by someone who represents Chef Aaron McCargo and asked to post his dialysis friendly recipes on my blog.

Since the entire goal of this blog is to get really great tasting recipes that are renal friendly in the hands of dialysis patients so they will actually stick to their diet, I have decided to post his recipes.

Lemon-Dill Carrots



Man it’s been a while hasn’t it? I suppose I have gotten lost in all of the projects I have been involved in. That and I just switched to a new clinic and I am just getting use to my new 5:30 AM wake up time. Yeah, first shift is killing me but at least I get my weekends and evenings back. Well I have stumbled upon a small issue as of late, my camera has stopped working. Until I get a new one or start using my iPhone I will be snagging images off of Google Images. The above image is very close to what I made today. Yeah I even used my mandolin to cut full grown carrots on the bias. Trust me, it looks nice but its easier to use baby carrots.
