Why Carrot Salad Between Meals?

Quick question about carrot salad.
I've heard Ray say that it's best to eat it BETWEEN meals, as opposed to with it I'm assuming.

Why is this?
And will consuming the carrot salad (raw carrot, coconut oil, vinegar) still have a positive effect if eaten with a meal?

Ray's also mentioned eating it with a meal. Can't find it right now but I'm sure of that. Just a casual mention. I think there is a perceived mechanical and chemical mechanism with the carrot salad as it winds its way through your narrow intestines, and having food mixing it up too soon may lower that effect. I had really bad indigestion when I took the carrot salad and ate psyllium fiber, that's for sure.

So basically it could potentially slow digestion and also, the mixing of the salad ingredients with other food would dilute the potency of the antibacterial effect.
Makes a lot of sense, thank you.

Actually, I thought Ray's reasoning was the carrot would inhibit absorption of some of the nutrients in your meal. I'm not sure of the mechanism though.
