Super Snack: Carrot Apple Salad

Carrot apple salad is a favorite side dish in my home.  It is packed with vitamins and nutrients and gives my kids a needed vitamin boost during the day.

The kids like it because it’s simple and tasty, and does not have a lot of “extras.”  I like it because the recipe contains fresh fruits and vegetables and makes a great healthy alternative to the regular after school snacks.

Carrot Apple Salad

  • 5-7 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 2 apples, peeled and grated
  • juice of 1 orange or citrus fruit
  • Optional: chopped pine-apple

Shred carrots and apples with a potato peeler and squeeze orange juice over the salad.  If you have a food processor, it will save time and energy with the grating portion of the recipe.  Allow the  salad to sit in juices for an hour.  Serve chilled.
