I liked this a lot. My kids did not. I think it would be better if the carrots were shredded. It was very sweet but the topping helped cut through that. Good luck in the contest!

I found this to be a very refreshing & enjoyable [almost a dessert] salad! Although I almost cut out the Grand Marnier in the beginning, I decided to leave it in, though I boiled it a little longer with the water before using it. All the flavors of the fruits & the carrots combined very nicely with that of the topping! In an evening's time, 5 of us made short work of this salad/dessert!
