Grandma Betty’s Carrot & Raisin Citrus Salad

A fun way to get your kids to eat more veggies is to get them involved with making this ultra-colorful salad. We made this salad with 120 kids at Capitol Heights Academy and they absolutely enjoyed creating their own plates. The colors, crunch, and natural sweetness of the carrots, cabbage and orange juice are a draw for the kids too. This salad is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and flavor! Great for kids and for the entire family.
