This salad is beautiful served over baby arugula, but doesn’t need the greens to still be tasty. Pair it wth a lentil or bean soup for a delicious vegetarian meal.

2 carrots, peeled and shredded
2 apples, peeled, cored and shredded
1 cup crumbled goat feta cheese
1 cup sunflower seeds, toasted.

¼ cup lemon juice
1 tsp Herbamare*
1 Tbsp agave nectar**
1 Tbsp grainy mustard
½ cup olive oil
