Cold and crunchy, the Carrot and Date Salad is a rejuvenating treat for your palate. It is important to chill the carrots and lettuce before making this salad in order to enhance their crunch.
The carrot salad is served on a bed of lettuce to improve its visual appeal, plus lettuce also gives it a nice taste. The garnish of dates and roasted almonds is the masterstroke, which widens the range of textures and flavours of this salad.
Make sure the salad stays in the fridge till you serve it, to preserve its crunchy texture and fresh taste. Serve it with the Honey and Lemon Dressing, for a tad more sweetness and a dash of tanginess too.
