Carrot Salad Recipe 

This carrot salad will have you loving carrots! It’s flavorful, and the carrots pair so nicely with the dill, hemp, and caper dressing.

When I was a kid, my mom used to juice carrots daily for me. Eventually, I actually turned orange. My friends would always compare my hands to theirs – the palms of my hands were definitely orange color! This is not a harmful side effect for your health, but it definitely made me loath carrots. I was just so sick of carrot juice!

However, carrots are an amazing and very healthy food. I wrote about them as part of my blog post on The Top Healthiest Foods, which you can read here. This recipe will make it much easier for all of us, including me, to eat more carrots!

In addition, the sauce for this salad is amazing. It is inspired by my online course, The Effortlessly Flavorful Vegan Kitchen. In the course, I teach how to create easy, delicious, and flavorful vegan meals using oil-free sauces, dips, and dressings. The focus is on making very quick meals that still taste amazing and are entirely home made and healthy. Sauces, dips, and dressings are key to making easy, quick and healthy vegan meals. They are also the key component of flavor for your meal.

Imagine yourself eating so many carrots on their own – it’s much less exciting than eating these carrots with the delicious dressing I have put together, and I teach you how to put together your own dressings, and how to combine them in amazing plant based meals inside the course. If you think figuring out how to make vegan meals taste good is magic, then you have just not discovered the science behind it yet, and this is exactly what I teach in the course! 

And in celebration of the opening of the second round for enrollment in The Effortlessly Flavorful Vegan Kitchen, I am excited to present to you:
