Thai Carrot Salad with Peanut Dressing

Here’s a light crunchy spiralized Thai flavored salad that you don’t need a spiraler to make. I actually own a spiraler, but have to admit, I don’t like to spiralize carrots.

These toasts are incredibly easy to put together for a family brunch or a regular weekday morning. It’s also a perfect meal to invite your little ones to help with (or make on their own, depending on their age).

Have you heard  the phrase, “eat the rainbow”? It’s a catchy way of inspiring us to eat a vast array of colors because the color of the food you eat has a lot to do with the nutritional value it contains. So, to ensure you get a variety of vitamins and minerals, you should be eating lots of colorful fruits and vegetables. Continue reading “Rainbow Ricotta Toast”
