Madison, my youngest daughter loves raw carrots. She gets them in her lunch box every single day, so when she saw these rainbow carrots in Trader Joe’s, she couldn’t believe carrots came in so many colors so I had to buy them for her to taste. The colors are just gorgeous, but you can also use orange carrots for this recipe.
