Carrot and Mitsuba Salad with Citrus

I don’t know about you, but my family has had a heck of a time staying healthy this winter! I’ve been searching out recipes packed with vitamins to boost our immune systems and get us on the road to better health.  Try this one with the carrots, oranges and the green garlic from your box, slightly adapted from Japanese Farm Food, by Nancy Singleton Hachisu.
