Different and suprising. Liked the flavor. I grated the carrots instead of jullianning them. So it was a different texture, I'm sure. Could definately see this as an accompianment to asian or middle eastern foods. Maybe not so much as a "salad" though. I gave it to my one year old on bread like a sandwich. He ate it and seemed to like it. I ate mine spread over some foccocia bread as a side dish to some soup. I could also see it being kind of like a "dip" with crackers.
I love it.
