Here is a quick carrot salad that is easily to whip up whenever you need. It’s creamy, crunchy and sweet!
Have you ever read a “nutritional facts” package secion and thought, “I have no idea what this really means, but it sounds good/bad.” I feel you there! The numbers might fluctuate, but one truth is simple: we all need vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein, fats, and healthy nutrition in our body daily.
A to Z, you might get more of one vitamin on one day and less on another: and that’s okay! Keeping a generally well-rounded diet is more important than regulating everything by numbers. Your body is not a math equation, so don’t treat it like one!
This recipe starts off at the top: vitamin A. This vitamin promotes good vision and is important for healthy growing. Here, carrots are a great source of it in the form of beta-carotene.
Carrots are also a great source of biotin, which supports protein metabolism, and potassium, which controls blood pressure.
Ever since I tried this quick carrot salad at my in-laws, I have been craving it. So of course I had to come home and make it. The sweet, crunchy and creamy carrot salad will become a staple in your recipes.
