This is a nice alternative to the mayonnaise-laden carrot salads I’m accustomed to finding. DH, who doesn’t like carrot salads, even said he would eat this one at a potluck. I let it sit about 36 hours before serving which allowed the flavors to blend more. Thanks for sharing! Reviewed for ZWT6.

I absolutely loved this salad. I let it sit longer before serving, and I found it to be very flavorful. I will be adding this to our rotation. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.
