What (your ingredients): 1 cup finely chopped carrot top greens 1 garlic clove, minced 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1 teaspoon paprika ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper ¼ cup olive oil ¼ cup champagne white wine vinegar

How (your directions):

Simply stir to combine! Store in covered bowl in refrigerator for 3-4 days.


carrot greens Why (the science):  All greens are a great source of chlorophyll, vitamins, and antioxidants-and not just salad greens! Remember, you get nutritious benefits from parsley, cilantro, mint, and carrot greens as well. Here's your Carrot Top Chimichurri - Nutrition Label
