Author Notes: I love using multicolored carrots in this salad for a nice visual effect, but it will be just as tasty with just one color, don’t worry. Also, if you love cheese as much as we do, I definitely recommend a crumble of feta or ricotta salata on top of this salad, it’s pretty fantastic.Sarah | Wisconsin from Scratch
