Confetti Spring Carrot Salad
With the warmer weather arriving, it is the time of year when we start to crave more raw veggies. Of course you can simply buy salad greens and toss them with a bit of dressing, but why not think outside the box and compose the salad of another veggie, like carrots! They are colorful, and filled with vitamin A which is wonderful for your skin. In the salad I am sharing with you today, I combine them with a bit of buttery avocado, flavorful cherry tomatoes and a citrusy vinaigrette for something that makes a wonderful side dish for an Easter or Spring celebration meal.
