i was very dubious of this recipe, but i had all the ingredients, so i tried it and was so pleasantly surprised! i added mint instead of cilantro, because that's what i had, and the mint-carrot-peanut combination is much greater than the sum of its parts. try it, i bet you'll like it too! Read More

This was very easy to put together. I made ahead as others suggested and added the peanuts just before serving. We felt the lemon was overpowering but the salad had a nice fresh quality about it. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Very nice salad to serve with spicy curry dishes. I followed the recipe exactly, but instead of adding dressing right before serving, next time I will add and let chill for a few hours in refrigerator. I found the salad nicer the next day after the dressing had time to marinate the carrots. Next time I will also try to add some raisins. Read More

What an awesome side dish this turned out to be! It was quick to make tasty initially and even better the next day. So much more fun than the same old same old roasted carrots. Each different flavor in the dressing sings out to you and the peanuty crunch makes your mouth happy. This is definitely getting into a regular rotation! Read More

It's a hard to find a good salad recipe that doesn't use any oil but this salad is delicious. I substituted honey for the sugar and replaced the peanuts with walnuts and sun flower seeds. Read More

Absolutely astounding. This is honestly one of my favorite dishes of all time. It's tart sweet salty and best of all is pretty dang good for you! I don't add quite as much lemon juice. I recommend letting it sit for a few hours in the refrigerator or even overnight to let the carrots completely absorb the juices and seasonings. Great recipe! Read More
