Orange Carrot Salad

This is a refreshing salad that adds a little zip to a festive dinner. Our state is second to Florida in production of oranges, so this recipe truly represents my area. I hope you get the chance to try it soon.

    I had this at a friend's house, without the oranges. Very refreshing and great colour. If I were to use oranges, I would put in a can of mandarins and skip the peeling of oranges. Also, it is perfectly fine without the cinnamon too.
