  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together carrots, onions, thyme and ¼ cup olive oil. Spread on a baking sheet. Place in oven and roast until carrots are nearly soft, about 20 minutes. Remove the carrots from the oven and sprinkle hazelnuts on top. Return to oven and continue cooking until nuts are toasted and aromatic, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the golden raisins in a small sauce pot. Cover with water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes until the raisins are plump. Drain the water.
  4. In a large bowl, add the cooked carrots, hazelnuts, raisins and arugula. (See Chef Tips.)
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ¼ cup olive oil, red wine vinegar and honey. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the dressing to the carrot mixture and toss together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Chef Tips

If you’re on the neutropenic diet, leave out the fresh arugula and instead, quickly saute spinach to add to the salad.
