Spiced Carrot Salad

Updated: Apr 22, 2021

Packed full of flavor, this roasted spiced carrot salad is the perfect healthy Easter or Passover dish!

Carrots are the universal vegetable. Name a person, bunny, or horse that doesn't love their sweet, crisp flavor, and I'll give you... well a carrot.

As Easter approaches, it's about time we switch up the yearly menu of the same old dishes, no more honey carrots for this gal, I'm feeling spicy this year.

I don't know about you, but I like to plan my menu around dishes that can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature, meaning I can save precious oven space for the star of the meal. This roasted carrot salad is perfect served at room temperature, making this a make-ahead Easter recipe you'll make every year.

Sweet baby rainbow carrots make this dish look extra festive, but you can use any old carrot, and cut them into equal pieces. It's so yummy your guests might just forget about the main course!

Make Easter a little healthier this year, and save some room in your tummy for whatever the Easter bunny saved for you!

This dish reminds me of my fave Passover tzimmes - upgraded! Try it out for your next Seder if you celebrate Passover!
