Recipe Ingredients

CARROTS: This recipe uses 8 medium carrots that are peeled and cut lengthwise. Then they’re simmered in a bit of water along with a sprinkling of salt. Feel free to cut carrots in any shape, as long as they’re similar in size for more even cooking.

SAUCE: A bit of mayonnaise and heavy cream is all you need to make this delicious tangy sauce that tastes lovely with the sweetness from carrots.

How To Make Mayonnaise Creamy Carrots

  2. Place carrots in a pot with water and salt according to full recipe instructions below.
  3. Drain carrots, then toss with creamy sauce. Serve and enjoy!

Cook the carrots until they’re crisp-tender, soft when poked with a fork but crisp enough that they won’t fall apart when you mix them with the sauce.

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave and serve as-is or inside a roasted vegetable salad, or use up in a creamy pureed soup.

These carrots are versatile and taste great with oven-fried chicken, alongside hamburgers, pork, steak or fish.
