This salad had always been a favorite salad of mine while growing up. I have missed it. So, I was very happy when this worked out so well.

Jelled Orange Carrot Salad

Serving Size: 4


  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups carrots, peeled and grated
  • 3 tablespoons orange marmelade, ginger marmelade or agave syrup
  • 10 grams agar agar (about 2 teaspoons)
  • soyanaise as a garnish

Jelled Orange Carrot Salad


  1. Spray a shallow baking dish or molds with oil.
  2. Peel and grate the carrots.
  3. Pour the orange juice into a medium saucepan.
  4. Add the sweetener and stir well to mix.
  5. Add the agar agar ad gain stir well to mix.
  6. Bring the orange juice mixture to a boil, stirring.
  7. Let it boil for 2 minutes then turn off the heat, and remove the pan fro the burner.
  8. I allowed it to cool a bit, as I did not want to cook the carrots.
  9. After 1-2 minutes, I added the carrots and stirred well to mix.
  10. Pour the mixture into the molds or baking dish then refrigerate.
  11. I was very happy that after 2-3 hours the salad was totally jelled.
  12. We served the salad, cut in squares, on a small bed of lettuce with a dollop of soyanaise on top, and a small lemon balm leaf.
  13. It’s important to have some oil (as is in the soyanaise) so that the vitamin A of the carrots is freed for digestion.


We used a product called Agartine by Ruf. Which was individual prepackaged amounts of 10 grams of agar agar.
