I am typically not a fan of carrots. I have to be honest, I don’t have a large variety of vegetables that I eat. But I am working to expand my vegetables past just green beans, corn, dry beans, cauliflower and broccoli.

Last week I woke up with a recipe on my mind, Carrots Salad. This was such an easy recipe. I cooked the carrots in the air fryer. So easy.

This is a Mediterranean style salad. Not a salad that is made with plain lettuce but instead with Carrots. A Unique Twist.

Plain carrots is not my thing. But these carrots were so delicious. A nice Carrot salad replacing a traditional salad.
