You may have seen my recipe the other week for my low carb carbonara, a main course I whipped up using this tool. But this week I decided to try making an easy peasy carrot salad. I took inspiration from a classic salad my mom used to make when we were kids – carrots, raisins and apples.
Carrot Salad without Mayo
I know, I know. Back in the day, there was a lot of mayo in the mix but I figured we could lighten things up in my carrot salad with a honey lemon vinaigrette.
I also added in a few zucchini noodles to stretch the portion and reduce the calories and carbs overall. The result was a fresh, sweet, comforting carrot salad that looked as pretty as it tasted amazing. You’ve got to get one of these tools and check it out!
