Pickled Carrots and Apple Salad With Pomegranate Balsamic Dressing

Here's a new favorite at the Pritikin Longevity Center that bursts with flavor (without bursting your blood vessels). Many pickled foods have more sodium than most of us should have for the entire day. This salad, created by Pritikin's award-winning chef Anthony Stewart, has zero added sodium. Like all the dishes at Pritikin, it is a celebration for both palate and heart. The perfect fit for foodies this fall.
