Makes: 4 jars

Dairy-free | Gluten-free

500g baby carrots, trimmed
2 Tbsp honey
1 orange, zest & juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
100g green beans, trimmed & cut into bite-sized pieces
Small handful Italian parsley, roughly chopped
200g red grapes, halved
200g mung bean sprouts
2 Tbsp slivered almonds
Salt & pepper

1 orange, zest & juice
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey

Method: Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Toss baby carrots in honey, orange zest and juice and oil, and roast for 10–12 minutes, until caramelised and tender. Allow to cool.

Meanwhile, toss together beans, parsley, grapes and mung beans, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with the roasted baby carrots and slivered almonds.

To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients. Set the dressing aside, then drizzle it over the salad when you're ready to serve it.
