I was looking for a substitute for the Mayonaise that is usually in the Southern carrot and raisin salad. This dressing is grand....I did not do the recipe as it is written, since I already had grated my carrot, added chopped dates, since someone ate my raisin stash, and had chopped candied ginger for heat. Gonna roast some almonds now, after reading the recipe. Thanks you.

This is yummy! I too shredded the carrots and I didn't use the spinach. Loved the almonds, the crunch was lovely with the crisp fresh carrots, The salad made a great side for tonights chicken.

Great tasting salad, for sure! Followed your recipe right on down, although I did shred the raw carrots instead of slicing them thin! Will be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
