Moroccan Carrot Salad

Moroccan Carrot Salad cardiocoffeeandkale.com

I am a fan of Mediterranean food!  I love it all!  I am crazy about the mix of fresh herbs and spices, and the fresh ingredients.  When you eat healthy, and remove a lot of the unnecessary fat and sugar, replacing them with fresh ingredients and lots of flavorful spices, you really don't miss the unhealthy ingredients at all!  

This Moroccan Carrot Salad is perfect for picnics and cook outs.  It has a unique blend of fresh herbs like mint and cilantro, mixed with spices like cinnamon and paprika - and the result is a delicious heathy salad!  Carrots are loaded with healthy nutrients like beta-carotene, biotin, fiber, and they have a low glycemic index.  Carrots are a powerhouse of antioxidant nutrients!

At our last cookout, I made this salad, along with our Superfood Citrus Quinoa Salad and a ton grilled veggies for the side dishes!  No need for macaroni or potato salads loaded with calories and fat!  The beauty is that once you get used to eating fresh and healthy recipes, you really don't miss all the old foods, and actually crave the fresh taste of healthier foods!  

Give the Moroccan Carrot Salad with unexpected flavors a try and let us know what you think!
