Carrot Cinnamon Detox Salad

by | Aug 15, 2017 | Detox, Salads

This Carrot Cinnamon Detox Salad is one of my favourites as it combines two of the best tastes: sweet and savoury. Carrots, raisins and cinnamon meld together perfectly with a creamy basil dressing to create the perfect detox salad in minutes.

Who wouldn’t agree that summer is the best time for salads? I do love them anytime of year, but this one here is a favourite of mine and I think it’s safe to say you can enjoy it any time of year đŸ˜‰

This salad takes no more than a few minutes to whip up and you’ll find all the flavours come together so nicely to create a sweet, fresh salad bowl. Also, arugula is delicious.
