      This was great! The only thing I might change next time would be to cut the carrots julienne rather than sliced (I guess I didn't slice then thin enough and they were still a bit too hard). The taste was fabulous and it did go together fairly quickly.

      WINNER!!!! This is very good! I might even add more "heat" next time! Don't let the long ingredient list put you off, it comes together very easily. Thanks for posting this. It was one of my PAC Spring 2007 picks.
