If you do happen to come across really thick carrots, they are perfect for spiralizing (they should be at least 1 -1/2 inches in diameter). You can usually find thick carrots at the farmers market or sold loose in the grocery store. And for those of you who often ask what spiralizer I use, pictured below is the Inspiralizer, the best quality spiralizer if you want to easily spiralize those tougher vegetables like carrots and butternut.

A perfect side dish for chicken, grilled steaks or even fish. If you want to turn this into a main dish for lunch, I think it would be great with grilled chicken and crumbled feta added.

  1. Made this tonight & it was so refreshing good. It was perfect to pair with your chicken drumsticks tomatillo recipe as you suggested. Another winner! Thank you Gina!

  2. I love this with a bit more dijon and a big handful of fresh chopped dill. I add in some chickpeas and sunflower seeds to make it a great lunch! 

  3. I liked this carrot salad the day I made it, but I found it tasted even better when I ate some for lunch the next day! I am actually not much of a raw veggie fan, but this salad is now a favorite!
