DSC_7525

this carrot avocado salad is one of my favorite things to make in the summer, it’s super easy, healthy and fresh. the lightly spiced carrots with the citrus and creaminess of the avocado is a perfect match! – joanie

    This is a great recipe and seems a bit like a rift of what Smitten Kitchen posted just over a week ago — http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2016/05/roasted-carrots-with-avocado-and-yogurt/

    designlovefest says:

    Ohh, that one looks good too! A bit more advanced but I’ll have to try it. The carrot, avocado combo shows up in a lot of recipes, it’s so good!
