3-carrot salad with chia-lemon dressing

3-carrot salad

A salad made from only carrots?🥕I know you probably think I’ve gone full rabbit!☺️🐰No I haven’t. What I have done is made one of the best salads ever…and it’s totally vegan and super easy literally the salad is ONE ingredient! ONE!

I did add some pistachio and cashew pieces to the salad but that’s optional and so is the thyme but it’s really good. If you leave out the pistachios and cashews it will be nut free. 🥜 🌰

Let’s talk about the good things about this salad…it’s: vegan🌱, dairyfree🐮, glutenfree🌾, and delicious😋!

3-carrot salad

Carrots. Do one of each color. Purple, white, and orange or yellow if you prefer.
Fresh thyme. If you know me then you know I like fresh. Fresh is best.
Pistachios. Shelled or hand shelled they both taste delicious! Crush them then use them.
Cashews. Crush them then sprinkle them over your salad. They may be slightly bland but I like their bland flavor.
Chia seeds. Use the dressing immediately if using chia seeds. Poppy seeds will last longer.
Lemon juice. Use fresh. Believe me it’s best.
Olive oil. I always use extra virgin.
ginger. Never use ground ginger in this recipe. Always use fresh ginger when noted.
