Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots

This sweet-and-tangy side dish is super easy to put together and adds a nice pop of color to your dinner table!

For Easter this year, in addition to the always requested Dressy Deviled Eggs, I was in charge of bringing a side dish and dessert.

My father-in-law made an impressive feast (both lamb and ham!) and provided plenty of wine for the festivities.

These carrots were a prefect addition to the table. I cooked them until they still had a little bit of bite left to them, but feel free to cook them longer if you prefer your carrots a bit softer.

I used a bag of “gourmet baby carrots” that I picked up from the store – I thought the little green bits on top and slender shape helped make them look more elegant without adding any additional prep time for me.

Such an easy side dish that was a hit with the whole family!
