For this recipe, you’ll need to slice the carrots diagonally - that way you’ll have lots of surface to work with! I actually love to eat raw, unseasoned carrots (especially when they’re shredded, YUM!), so I don’t try that many recipes with them.


This is a MUST try because it’s really so darn good! It’s a perfect balance between sweet and salty while being healthy. Could you ask for more than that? I think not!
