This salad features a nice blend of crunchy, omega-rich nuts, which complement the soft millet and raw zucchini. If you end up with leftover avocado dressing, don’t limit it to this single dish. Drizzle it over other vegetables, such as roasted asparagus!

  • 1 medium raw carrots
  • 1/2 cup Almonds, Natural Raw
  • 1/2 cup Cashews
