Instead of a PB&J, try a CB&C: smooth cashew butter, bacon, and a bright, crisp-tender carrot salad on top. The perfect savory treat topped with crunchy veggies and crispy bacon. If you have a nut allergy, substitute seed butter or hummus. Make your own cashew butter, or buy it at your local grocery store.
1. Shave carrot with a vegetable peeler to yield 1/3 cup ribbons; reserve remaining carrot for another use. Combine carrot ribbons, parsley, oil, and vinegar in a bowl; toss. Let stand 5 minutes. Spread cashew butter evenly over toast; top with bacon and carrot mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
