Wilted Dilled Carrots

March 1, 2011

Author Notes: I frequently make a wilted cucumber salad with dill and red onion for family dinners and thought why not use the same technique with carrots? Since there are only two of us at home right now, I made a small batch using 1 pound of carrots, but this could certainly be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled for large gatherings.inpatskitchen

Makes: about 2 cups


  • 1 pound carrots cut into 2 -3 inch match stick size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
In This Recipe


  1. Sprinkle the cut carrots with the kosher salt. Toss and place in a colander set over a bowl for about 2 hours. The carrots will exude some juice and wilt slightly.
  2. After two hours, thoroughly rinse and drain the carrots.
  3. Combine the carrots with the vinegar, sugar,dill and red onion. Chill in a covered container for few hours, stirring now and then.
