#Baby Carrot Salad

My love for salads has led me to experiment on the myriad options that avail themselves in the store aisles. Rocket leaves or lettuce or spinach? Berry dressing or a simple lemon one? Walnuts, almonds or pecans for that extra crunch? I’m like a hyperactive child when it comes to salad shopping!
