Balsamic Vinaigrette Carrots

I'm always on the search for yummy and healthy side dishes. It is so easy to whip up some rice or microwave some corn - but sometimes you just need to add some excitement to your meal, right?? Well on my search for said excitement, I stumbled upon a pin I had from awhile back (when I pretty much was obsessed with Pinterest... Don't worry, I've learned to get this obsession under control and actually make the things I pin.)

These balsamic vinaigrette carrots are a great "mixer-upper" for your vegetable side dish. They have great flavor and are definitely a crowd pleaser. I put on some pretty basic seasonings, but don't be afraid to experiment a little. After all, everyone needs to add some extra excitement every once in awhile!
