Shredded carrots paired with goat cheese and pecans make for a quintessentially autumn salad. Israeli couscous and red quinoa make this salad hearty and good for a lunch or dinner. For non vegetarians, the addition of shrimp or chicken would transform this salad into a full meal. I found tri-colored heirloom carrots at Trader Joe's; if you have a local Trader Joe's in your area, you too can find these heirloom carrots for your salad. The candied pecans are simply purchased from a bag at Trader Joe's, but you can make your own if you are feeling ambitious.
