This was a quick and easy salad. It had all of the things in it that my 2yr old nephew likes: carrots, "apples" (red peppers), and NUTS! I used almonds which I chopped up, some small, some big and toasted in the toaster oven. It was a good salad to go along with rice, roti, and recipe#58584.

this made a quick and easy counterpoint to a very spicy entree. this is not highly seasoned, but that is what i wanted for an accompaniment to goan style shrimp. this and the raita both worked in different ways to help quench the fire! nice and crunchy too. i used a bit of black salt in addition to the regular salt, which gave the flavors a bit more complexity. i used toasted slivered almonds which i keep on hand, and with pre-shredded carrots from the store, this goes together in a flash!

Made a very quick and small serving of this with your rice with julienned potatoes and it complemented it so well. I had to use cashews and orange bell peppers and it was perfect!
