Thanksgiving is next week already and cranberries are where it’s at! I took a childhood classic that my mom used to make, carrot salad, and turned it into my own. Maybe you are familiar with the carrot salad with the mayonnaise, milk and raisins? I loved this stuff growing up, especially the raisins! I wanted this side dish to be a little more special for the holidays so I used multi-colored carrots to give it a holiday pop of color! Also, instead of the raisins, I used a holiday classic, cranberries which give it the perfect touch of tart sweetness. There are a lot of great colors and textures going on in this dish so get your taste buds ready!
FUN FACT: Did you know carrots started out as just having a white pigment? Also, not much nutritional value? Over many many years the rainbow of colors mutated from this white “wild carrot” and now contain a ton of health benefits like lycopene and beta-carotene to name a few. Also, each color has their own specific benefit.
