Sweet Carrot Dish

Carrots are very low in cholesterol making this a basic heart healthy dish that is also a wonderful addition to any meal especially for occasions such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. This dish is also a good source of dietary fiber, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. The blending of sweet orange juice and tangy lemon juice bring out a special flavor and "zippiness". In addition, the simplicity of the carrots stand out beautifully with a dash of fresh green parsley making it a truly attractive entrée to serve.
