Carrot Salad with Craisins, Pumpkin Seeds, Almonds, and Lemon

February 10, 2009

A delight to the eye and a delight to the palate, this salad has perfectly balanced flavors, textures, and colors. The carrots provide plenty of beta carotene. The pumpkin seeds provide iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and protein. The almonds provide manganese, vitamin E, vitamin B2, and protein. The lemons provide Vitamin C. The craisins provide fiber.

Here’s the recipe.

Peel and grate five medium-sized carrots. Add a handful of craisins, pumpkin seeds, and almonds. Squeeze half a lemon over the top. Taste, and add more lemon if you like.
