What is going on with the weather patterns this year??? Here in sunny California, we are experiencing high temperatures and suffering through the 4th year of a historic drought!

Le Top Chef Series: Heirloom Carrot Salad

 Carrot salad – it’s a cool, easy-to-make salad that is delicious and chock full of vitamins and nutrients for growing bodies. Of course carrots are sweet, and a favorite with the little ones! This particular recipe has a new twist on a classic recipe – using heirloom carrots as the main ingredient. These beautiful and vibrant veggies make the salad look even more colorful than the classic salad. If you don’t have colorful heirloom carrots available at your local supermarket, then regular carrots will do just fine. I made this recipe last night with my daughter, who had made it in Kid’s Club at her school. I had forgotten how yummy carrot salad was, and was happy that she reminded me.

Why not have the kids take part in making this tasty salad that the whole family can enjoy? Kids like to help peel the carrots, and they may, depending on their age, enjoy grating them as well. Tots can also help with measuring and pouring the ingredients, and mixing them all together. Grown-ups can do the rest!
