These reasonably low-cal carrots are full of flavor and complement just about anything. They'd be perfect for a picnic as they're to be served at room temperature; they're also delicious cold. I clipped this from a magazine years ago. Prep time doesn't include 48-hour marinating. P.S. First "salad" 15 year-old boy has eaten and requested again in like FOREVER.
