Carrot Pomegranate Slaw With Sweet Garlic Mustard Dressing

I love Thanksgiving not only because it brings friends and family together but because of the abundance of beautiful food that people take the time to spend preparing. Being a vegan, my plate is usually piled high and brimming full of side dishes. This holiday is notorious for leaving people stuffed and sleepy after dinner, probably due to the large amounts of warm, heavy foods they indulge in. I wanted to include a light, seasonal side that wouldn’t leave me feeling weighed down so I made this salad combing raw carrots and pomegranate perils with a spicy honey mustard dressing. This salad is a wonderful replacement for the carrots that are typically served roasted. Since these carrots aren’t cooked they are able to retain their high amounts of vitamin A while the pomegranate perils bring antioxidants to the table. This salad requires minimal ingredients and can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
