Rocket-salad-carrot-chipsSweet and spicy carrot chips give this salad a flavoursome crunch.

When making carrot chips, you can use any spice or herb you like. Turmeric provides a mildly spiced, sweetish taste, while curry powder gives more of a bite. You can eat these chips on their own as a snack, or add them to salads or serve as a side dish with your main meal.
