Excellent! I love carrots and this is a lovely new way to serve them. I made the recipe as directed using balsamic vinegar, but had to sub minced green onion for the chives. I made quick work of the slicing by using a mandolin. The carrots and onion come out crispy tender and the chive (green onion) garnish adds another layer of flavor as well as color. I served this with BBQ grilled steak with Stick to your ribs Creamy mushroom sauce #70794 and Great Greek Green Beans #71244. Thanks Tebo, great recipe!
This was amazing! I never would have thought that garlic and onions would blend with carrots. I put two crushed garlic cloves into the butter while it was melting, turned off the heat and let it sit for one half hour before removing the garlic. I will add this to my rotation, thanks.
I used basalmic vinegar. My partner didn't mind this dish, but I very much disliked it. As soon as the carrots cooled the vinegar left an awful taste and to me made this inedible (and I usually love basalmic).
