What a lovely sidedish! I only substituted one thing and that was Splenda for the sugar. The flavors blended very nicely and my husband had two helpings! Thanks, Carole in Orlando

These were good - the flavour of the dill really complemented the sweetness of the carrots! Other than omitting the water chestnuts (I made this on the spur of the moment & didn't have any), I followed the recipe exactly. Thanx Kree!

I feel badly since everyone else loved this recipe, but to me, it was not all that flavourful. I followed the recipe exactly, used fresh dill and added more in place of parsley when it was cooked. I will say it is an extremely colourful dish. I think, for me, all the flavours were boiled out. I might next time try cooking them in my steamer, using chicken broth in place of water.
