Carrot Salad With Bacon Bits and Pecans

Happy Thursday! Just wanted to share a salad that I made recently. It’s a multi-color carrot salad with maple-candied bacon bits and honey roasted pecans. Top with just a really simple olive oil and lemon vinaigrette.

I got these organic carrots from Trader Joe’s. When I saw the variety of colors, I knew I had to try them! They are a lot crispier than the normal ones.

I made maple-candied bacon using thick cut bacon pieces. First, add some fresh cracked pepper and bake for about 10 mins at 300 degrees. Take them out and generously brush with maple syrup. Continue baking for about 15 more minutes or to the crispy texture that you desire (my hubs prefer it burnt).

Here’s all there is to it: thinly shave the carrots, add the bacon bits, and pecans. Lightly toss with a olive oil + lemon vinaigrette.
