By Shalini Kolluri

This salad is appreciated by everyone because of its unique blend of flavors. The sweet and sour dressing goes perfectly well with the crunchy veggies and roasted nuts. It’s so easy to whip up, and the flavors are bright and fresh. Enjoy!

1/4 cup almonds (roasted and crushed into crunchy bits)

1/4 cup shredded carrot

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
