crunchy sweet carrot salad

This carrot salad is perfect for a hot summer's day (ok - I know we're in the wrong season here - but it's delish right now too!). You can peel and shred your own carrots - or if you're feeling extra lazy, buy one of those ready-to-use bags you can buy in the grocery aisle.

2-3 carrots, peeled and shredded or one bag of shredded carrots
2 green onions or chives, finely diced
2 Tbsp. orange juice or 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp. pine nuts and/or almonds
2 Tbsp. dried cranberries or raisins or dried dates (chopped into small pieces)
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. fresh mint, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. Dijon mustard
salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients in one large mixing bowl. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to allow flavors to set. Serve!
