Tomato and Carrot Balsamic Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #32

Tomato and Carrot Balsamic Salad

Tomato and Carrot Balsamic Salad

Carrots, tomatoes, and basil are growing in our garden! These summertime veggies create one of my husband’s favorite (and VERY simple) salads.Tomatoes contain high levels of vitamin C and K and biotin. Their antioxidant properties have been researched and found to decrease cancer risks and aid in bone health. Carrots are also high in vitamin K and biotin, but supply a tremendous amount of vitamin A giving the body a significant punch of antioxidants.

 

TOMATO AND CARROT BALSAMIC SALAD

1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half

2 large carrots, chopped

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste
