Recipe for Green Carrot Salad with Ginger Vinaigrette
This is a delicious and healthy power salad that can be eaten any time of the day. The combination of ingredients makes this meal a superfood! This salad will help boost your energy, stimulate your fat burning potential, and increase your immune system. I highly recommend using organic ingredients for greater health benefits.
* It is best to start with the vinaigrette to allow the flavors to blend together. The longer, the better.

Green Carrot salad Ingredients:
4 medium carrots
2 chopped green onions
1/2 lemon zest
1 cup of grilled walnuts (For more protein) Or – 1 Tbsp of sesame seeds
1/2 cup Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Take 2 carrots and cut them julienne style ( cut into long thin strips), then take the other 2 and grate them in a large bowl. Mix the carrots, green onions, walnuts, cilantro and the lemon zest.
Pour the vinaigrette in the salad, mix all of the ingredients and serve on a bed of arugula or baby spinach. You can add a bit of chia seeds if you wish. That recipe compliments any fish, meat or even quinoa.
