This salad is wonderful to add to the table during holidays and special occasions but also during the summer months. Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene which helps to protect you from the damaging effects of the sun's rays. They also contain vitamin C and a wealth of other nutrients. When buying these delicious root vegetables, choose carrots with the deepest, darkest orange color as they contain the highest levels of beta-carotene.
