We liked this... I adored the garlic and cilantro/coriander but was less enthused with the raw onions...personal preference only for DH and I though, so fussy us ended up picking them out. I also found the hot sauce .. tabasco in our case, to be distracting from the overall combination of flavours and the real taste of carrot, (again only personal preference)and since everyone else loved this this to bits it's really clear that you will always find some one that likes it less. I will definiately make this again, we liked the overall concept and just want to lessen a few ingredients to make this perfect for us. Please see my rating system: 3 stars for a carrot salad that I will be happy to make again with a few tweeks to keep fussy us happy. Thanks!
Very tasty. I left out the cilantro as I don't care for it. The lemon juice was a nice contrast with the sweetness of the carrots. It went very well with http://www.food.com/recipe/moroccan-lemon-chicken-with-olives-324785 and couscous.
This is one of my favorites, but I do it slightly differently - no onion, adding lemon zest (actually use one whole lemon instead of the lemon juice and chop it thinly or with the food processor), cumin and instead of the hot sauce, add green chillies chopped thinly. let is rest for a few hours and it is an amazing and refreshing salad.
