Absolutely delicious! Everyone loved it! The only change I would make is to use 1tsp cinnamom so it's more pronounced, as the name implies plus reduce the cumin because it is so strong. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers., Spice It Up! Challenge.

Love, love, love this salad!! This goes together very quickly and easily, but packs a ton of flavor. The predominate spice is cumin, which I am a HUGE fan of, with underlying tones of cinnamon...delicious!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!!

The carrots are just the right texture - just a little softened - and the flavor blend is fabulous. Made for ZWT9.
