Apple Carrot Simple Slaw

As the weather warms I begin craving food in its simplest form.  I have been eating this slaw for breakfast, snacks, and dessert.

I did not include measurements for the ingredients because this is not a recipe that needs exact measurements.  Simply make as much as you would like.  The slaw does keep well in the fridge as long as you do not add the raisins or walnuts until you are ready to serve / eat it (or they will become soggy).

I used equal parts apple and carrot.

Shredded apple 
Shredded carrot
Fresh orange juice
Cinnamon to taste (I use THIS cinnamon.)
Chopped walnuts for garnish (I buy my walnuts HERE.)

Put the shredded apple and carrot in a bowl and mix well.  Squeeze the orange juice onto the apple and carrot, sprinkle with cinnamon to taste and mix to incorporate.

If you plan on serving the slaw immediately, go ahead and mix in the raisins and chopped walnut. Otherwise wait until you are ready to serve the slaw and add them at that point, or allow people to top their slaw themselves.
