Carrots used to grow in a wide variety of colors, and this heirloom variety is one example. The Lunar White carrot tastes like the orange carrots we know and love, but they look more like parsnips than carrots at first glance. Add them to salads, roast them with other veggies, or serve them up with your favorite dip.
