Shaved carrots with avocado pesto
blagh, this weather's got me feeling blagh. because one day it's warm/sunny + the next it's cold/overcast. it's confusing + frankly I don't know what to eat on these day either.
ha! I know, poor me. but I'm flipping between craving grilled cheese + kale salads over here.
this carrot salad though, it's kind of like my middle ground. it's fresh with the pesto + carrots, but indulgent with tons of feta too. it's the kind of food I want to eat now + I thought you'd like it too.
and it's simple. just shaved carrots, an avocado (+ parsley) pesto + the feta. toss it all together + enjoy!
