This  simple summer carrot salad is yet another recipe that was inspired by my mom. She used to make this as a side dish year round and it is so fresh and delicious.

The sweetness of the carrots pair nicely with the fruit and coconut. Feel free to play with the recipe and create your own delicious version. Apples and pears are both delicious in this salad, as are almost any nut or seed. Don’t forget to soak and dehydrate your nuts and seeds for optimal digestion.

What is your favorite salad? Do you have any old family recipes that have been passed down? Would love to hear about them! Leave a comment below.
