I think serving carrots as ribbons is prettier than just chopping them up. It takes quite a while to make them with a vegetable peeler, but if you're using them in salads, there's no other way to go.
You could make this salad with a mayonnaise-based dressing, but I thought a tart dressing would be more appropriate for fall. This would be a good starter for a fall-themed dinner, or just a very healthy afternoon snack!
