1/4 c. light tasting olive oil

2 cubes frozen basil

1/4 c. + 2 Tbsp. honey

dash black pepper

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Stir all together and set aside.

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced

3/4 finely diced carrots, peeled (you can also use shredded carrots, if you prefer)

add a couple of handful honey glazed almond sticks

1/2 c. diced scallions (approx. 2 scallions)

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss all ingredients together to combine.

Refrigerate and serve the salad cold, with the meal of your choice.  Or for a tasty and quick chol ah’moed lunch, top the salad with a piece of grilled salmon.
