Sweet Carrot Salad

Carrots are often added to dishes to introduce a little sweetness or a splash of color, but rarely get the spotlight all to themselves. We believe that this radiant root deserves to be in the spotlight for a change. This salad is a perfect side dish for everything from Thanksgiving to a summer cookout. This sweet and bright carrot slaw is sure to become a go-to.
