Flavored with English mustard, lemon juice and honey, this zesty carrot salad makes a great side dish.

A serving bowl of carrot salad garnished with parsley.

This tasty carrot salad gets its pungent flavor from English mustard, a spicy blend of both brown and white mustard seeds.

It’s a great ingredient to have on hand as its flavor is a wonderful complement to naturally sweet foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, and winter squash.
