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.
I expected the flavors to meld together better and for it to have more tanginess. It was a lot better with a big dollop of yogurt on top. Made for February Sun and Spice 2013.
Followed this exactly, and it was terrific! I loved the hot sauce addition, yummy! I had long string strips of carrots, and added some fresh zucchini strips too. Fresh parsley, and fresh cilantro, rounded out the goodness on a plate. Made for ZWT6 Zee Zesties!
Loved by all! Fresh flavor and I always love when I find something healthy that I like. It always seems like the tastiest things are the fattening ones. Not the case here, great recipe!!! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6.
MMM good. I needed to find new ways to use carrots, and this was perfect. Made for ZWT6 for the Xtra Hot Dishes
Very good blend of flavors. Thanks!
A very pleasant blend of flavors. I used green onions, as I don't like to eat a mouthful of raw onion, and it was great. Thanks for posting :)
I made this today, but left out the hot sauce since my client doesn't like hot. The blend of flavors is fantastic. Fresh lemon juice is a must!
