This delicious crisp spiralized purple carrot and cilantro salad is a delicious root vegetable salad that even our kids loved.
Have you seen those big beautiful purple carrots?
Many people will ask where to buy these purple carrots because they are so vibrant. Go check your farmer’s markets and grocery stores. Our farmer’s market had several vendors selling these. You can also find them at Whole Foods and Trader Joes! These carrots are heirloom carrots, which means their seeds have been passed down over many generations. Heirloom seeds are open-pollinated, not artificially, making them more natural.
The carrots I found were a deep purple on the outside, then a bright orange yellow on the inside.
My Purple Carrot and Cilantro Salad recipe is so easy to make.
See those fun colors? I love that some of the bright yellow color is in the salad too! My kids loved this rainbow salad, even my picky child. If you haven’t used a spiralizer yet, this is a great way to make vegetables fun for kids.
Ooops, I forgot to take a picture of my purple carrots in the spiralizer, however this photo gives you an idea of what it looks like. You get tons of delicious curly cue pieces of vegetable.
Easy to make in one bowl
Add all of the ingredients in one bowl and added the dressing ingredients to the same bowl. Toss so that everything mixed together. I used an elderberry infused balsamic vinegar for my recipe. If you can’t find this in your store, check out Trader Joe’s. They have a delicious pomegranate balsamic vinegar that tastes delicious in this purple carrot salad recipe too.
Look at all of those curly purple carrots! I need to spiralize another one and make crispy carrot fries out of it!
