I cut this in half and I did use the dijon mustard. I let it sit a couple hours in the fridge to marry. It was delicious. Thanks for posting.

What a great fresh way to serve carrots! I halved the recipe and did use about 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon; I thought it gave the carrots a wonderful flavor. Served with baked chicken and really enjoyed this - thanks for posting your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010
