No. 1 : Quick Recipe

Simply Delicious Spring Carrot Salad

  • 1 Garlic Clove, grated
  • 2 TB Chopped Cilantro 
  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon, zested and juiced 
  • ½ Orange, zested and juiced
  • 2 TB Honey 
  • 6 Large Carrots, grated 
  • 1 Cup Golden Raisins
  • 1 Cup Sliced Almonds


Step One

In large bowl whisk together garlic, cilantro, oil, zests, juice and honey. Add carrots and raisins and toss to coat with the dressing. Set aside for a few minutes to allow the salad to soak in the flavor.

Step Two

While the salad is resting, spread the almonds out on a baking sheet and place in a 400F oven for 3 minutes. Check to see if they are slightly golden, if so remove. If not, slide back into the oven and check again in 2 minutes. When golden, remove from the oven and sprinkle the almonds over the top of the salad.

No. 2 : Kitchen Scoop

​You can almost always find a snack of fruits and nuts in the bottom of my purse, and raisins are always in the bag. Raisin’s color depend on the type of grape used and can be green, black, brown, blue, purple and yellow. Feel free to pick and choose your favorite kind in this salad – I can find beautiful red raisins in the regular grocery store. Many yellow raisins are treated with sulphur dioxide to retain your color; you can buy organic golden raisins that have not been treated with sulphur.

No. 3 : Get Creative

Make this colorful salad into a Spring sandwich by adding it to a pita pocket along with sliced tomato, a drizzle of Greek yogurt and fresh dill.
