Raw Broccoli Carrot Salad is full of crunch, color, and flavor. This salad is loaded with fiber and antioxidants: vitamin A from the carrots, vitamin C from the broccoli, and vitamin E from the walnuts. Plus fiber, potassium, vitamin K and host of other nutrients in these raw ingredients.
If your broccoli stems are a bit tough, peel them a little before slicing very thin using a mandoline or food processor.
