Tossed Salad with Carrot Dressing Recipe

Tossed Salad with Carrot Dressing Recipe

We love going to the farmer's market on summer Saturdays to by homegrown lettuce and fresh produce for salads. I hope you'll try my special dressing, made with pureed vegetables. I've received compliments on its flavor and pretty color.
