Roasted Carrot Salad

1 Salad
30 Minutes

This gorgeous plant based meal is packed with flavor! I seriously cannot get enough of this salad. The sweetness from the honey paired with savory garlic and a zing of lemon - it is truly an explosion of flavor.

This salad contains pearled couscous, roasted carrots, feta cheese, and pistachios which will keep you super full and satisfied!

It can be served warm or cold, as a side dish or main, and sometimes I serve it with chicken or pork.

Omit the feta cheese for a dairy free version. Carrots can be cooked in the air fryer or oven, both cooking instructions listed in my recipe below.
