Carrot salad with orange dressing - recipe

Here we are with the second of my yummy detox recipes. One of the things I can't abide is boring salad. Carrots are extremely high in beta carotene which is an anti-oxidant which is great for detoxing. Oranges are also great for clearing toxins and are packed full of vitamin C to help you ward off any winter sniffles. To give the salad a little bit it also contains almonds and pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are source of zinc and magnesium which are great for the skin.

you will need;
2 large carrots
zest of one orange
juice of half an orange
1tsp Dijon mustard
2tbsp olive oil
dash balsamic vinegar
1tbsp flaked almonds
2tbsp pumpkin seeds
  1. Grate your carrot into a bowl and mix with the seeds.
  2. In a lidded bottle or jar mix the mustard, oil, vinegar, zest and juice. Shake vigorously to make the dressing and pour over the salad.
