Carrot Salad Sandwich
This unexpected sandwich filling is great for incorporating leftovers. The crunch of carrots in a sour-sweet dressing contrast nicely with the rich cream cheese.
2 slices whole grain bread
1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup Grated-Carrot Salad
Divide the cream cheese between the two slices of bread, spreading thinly to the edges. Spoon the salad evenly onto one slice of bread and place the second over to cover. Pack with fruit, baked snack mix and a yogurt drink. Serves 1-2, depending on age and appetite.
Extras: Grate some cucumber into the salad for color and juicy crunch.
Kids can: Help spread the cream cheese, assemble sandwiches.
