Almond Carrot Salad

A simple carrot salad that makes a great side (or snack if you are as weird as me!). This would go well with spicier mains like curries or with a barbecue.

Whats good about it: almonds are a good source of monounsaturated fats which are great for heart health. Carrots are a great source of beta carotene (converted to vitamin A in the body) and are a source of fibre. Pomegranate is a great source of polyphenols and vitamin C, both which act as antioxidants in the body, helping to protect against oxidative damage.
