Dear Dominion Post - From The Menu

I’m addicted to the carrot salad at The Rutland Arms in Whanganui.
I know carrot salad doesn’t sound very exciting, but it is yummy.

Rutland Arms Carrot Salad

375g coarsely grated carrot
350g coarsley grated tasty cheese
4 stems celery, cut thinly on the diagonal
2 cups peanuts, baked and cooled
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1 cup currants
Lemon pepper, to taste
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup Master Foods Italian Dressing

Combine all ingredients. This salad makes a lot - enough for six 300g bowls (as above) or one large bowl - so it’s ideal for big gatherings.
