Carrot Top Tabouli Salad

Posted in : Salads, Veggies on by : Nicole

Seeing the amazing amount of greenery that comes with the carrots, i just couldn’t toss it into the compost or the trash… Being in favor of waste not want not, I was on a mission to find a way to use them.

I read a recipe and realized they were very similar to parsley – well wow!

Woot – time for tabouli!
