A big thank you to Edinburgh based Zara Carmichael who is all about helping you find your zen through her work in yoga, nutrition and mindfulness.
She's an advocate for intuitive eating, letting go of dieting and finding balance through the ingredients that make your body feel good. She's created a delicious and nutritious honey roasted carrot salad for us with our Scottish Heather Honey.
For the Salad:
- 2 Large Carrots
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Heather Honey
- 1 Handful of Mixed Leaves
- 1/2 Cup Garden Peas
- 1 Handful of Chopped Almonds
- 1 Handful of Raisins
- 1 Bunch of Parsley
For the Dressing:
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 (generous) tsp Heather Honey
- 1 tsp Mustard
- Salt and Pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Peel and diagonally slice the carrots into bite-sized chunks and place on the lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and honey then roast in the oven for 30-minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl toss together all of the other salad ingredients, leaving some parsley and almonds aside for the top.
Prepare the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl, whisking together with a fork.
Once cooked, top the salad with the roasted carrots and generously spoon over the dressing. Garnish with the extra almonds and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Enjoy as a light lunch or side dish.
