  • Nutrition Tip

    Carrots are not only good for eye health, but they also contain important antioxidants and other health-supporting nutrients.

    Rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene, carrots may also have cancer preventive and immune supportive benefits. Consider trying this recipe with another root vegetable, such as beets, parsnip, fennel, and turnips. Use seasonal and locally sourced produce that has been picked before the peak of ripeness for richer flavors and higher nutrient content. Explore your local farmer's market or join a community supported agriculture group to explore more produce options that would go great with a lightly dressed salad.
