Orange salad with chewy pink treats
......It's amazing how you'll describe something to get kids to eat it. Orange salad with chewy pink treats covers 2 favorite colors and the word 'treats' always gets some face time!
This is actually a carrot/apple salad with walnuts and dried cranberries. I do not eat carrots. I eat this. it is THAT good.
Here's the recipe:
2c shredded carrots
2 shredded apples
juice from 1 lemon
3T agave nectar
1.5oz crushed pecans (or almonds, or nut of your choice)
50g dried cranberries (unsweetened or juice sweetened, if you can find them)
pinch of ginger, pinch of salt
Mix it all up and enjoy. I'm told it tastes even better when it sits overnight, but the batch I made today will be gone before bedtime. I found several recipes online that were similar and I made the subs you see here. It's worth a try. I would even bring a big double batch of this to a party - yes, it's good enough to serve to friends!
