Carrot & Beet Coconut Salad

After spending a warm and beautiful day on the beach in Costa Rica, we are craving a cool and refreshing snack to eat. One of Chef Marie’s favorite afternoon snacks is to serve the Carrot & Beet Coconut Salad.

This recipe is a delicious fusion of Costa Rican, French and American cuisine. While really tasty, this healthy snack is also fat free, gluten free, sugar free, vegan, and is also high in fiber.
