I wanted a 'pickled' carrot salad, but only had hours to prepare it, not days or weeks, so I came up with this. It worked very well with Baked sea bass (Chinese style). The sultanas really compliment the acidic flavours and the onion adds a clean bite.

  1. Arrange the grated carrots in a bowl and pour the vinegar over the carrots
  2. Set aside and refrigerate for 2 hours or so
  3. In a separate bowl, refrigerate the onions too, just to keep them chilled
  4. After 2 hours, rinse the grated carrots for 20 secs under cold runing water. This should remove the harshness of the vinegar, but leave a pickled flavour.
  5. Leave in a sieve for 5 minutes to drain
  6. Add the sliced onions and sultanas and lime juice and mix
  7. Stir in 1 teaspoon sugar if still a little tart
