Roasted Carrot and Avocado Salad

Roasted Carrot and Avocado SaladA roasted carrot and avocado salad that you can enjoy either cool or warm!

Lately I’ve been totally obsessed with roasted carrots- on everything. They’ve shown up as a means for dipping hummus, in salads, and even on their own- I just love them. Carrots often get a bad wrap for having so “too much sugar”- but frankly, there’s many other things in most of our diets that have plenty more sugar and less than half of the nutritional value. So, I think they’re pretty great.┬áThe avocado in this salad is also filling and loaded with healthy fat and the carrots (you already know that I think they’re awesome) are loaded with eye-healthy nutrients like vitamins A and C as well as beta carotene.

Enjoy this delicious salad!
