My husband and I are not fans of raw carrots, but add lemon juice and Dijon and it’s a game changer – we LOVE them!!

If you do happen to come across really thick carrots, they are perfect for spiralizing (they should be at least 1 -1/2 inches in diameter). You can usually find thick carrots at the farmers market or sold loose in the grocery store. And for those of you who often ask what spiralizer I use, pictured below is the Inspiralizer, the best quality spiralizer if you want to easily spiralize those tougher vegetables like carrots and butternut.

A perfect side dish for chicken, grilled steaks or even fish. If you want to turn this into a main dish for lunch, I think it would be great with grilled chicken and crumbled feta added.
