Sweet Carrot Salad with Dates and Orange

Carrot Salad

I like this salad particularly in the wintertime. The spices, the orange, and the dates give it the perfect flavor combination for a Christmas treat. Tossed with almond butter it is creamy and rich.
You can enjoy it fresh and crunchy in a raw version or sweet and tender in a cooked one.
