Purple Carrot Salad

This Purple Carrot Salad with an Almond Dressing is the perfect side dish and great to bring to BBQs too! It’s a real eye catcher. The carrots are still crunchy and the dressing is sweet with a light taste of marzipan. I’ve added some additional Cashew Parmesan on top and it was so good!

Purple Carrots

I simply had to buy these beautiful purple carrots when I saw them in the store. They look so fancy in the salad! Have you tried them yet? In my opinion they taste a tiny bit sweeter than regular carrots.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 purple carrots
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon water (see notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Homemade Cashew Parmesan (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Peel the carrots and spiralize them, and put them in a large bowl.
  • Mix the almond butter with the water, lemon juice and salt until smooth and pour it over the spiralized carrots.
  • Let the carrots marinate for about half an hour before serving them.
  • Top with Cashew Parmesan if you want!

Notes

Depending on the brand and storage of the almond butter, you may have to use more water than given in the ingredients. Simply use enough water to make a smooth & creamy almond dressing.
I used my Spiralizer for the carrots, but you could also use a Julienne Peeler.
