Italian Garlic & Carrot Salad

By • February 27, 2011 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: This recipe dates back to Italy and my Italian Grandmother. It was a staple in my house growing up and the only way I could stand to eat carrots. To this day, I'm not the biggest carrot fan, but I can't pass up the familiar taste of my grandma's garlicky carrot salad.

This dish is easy to make, colorful and healthy, and complements a gourmet menu or a southern barbecue.

Since we grew up in the same house, I too love these carrots. One of the easiest ways to prepare carrots.
