This got a positive 4 stars. I might increase the cayenne slightly next time around. All in all it is a good salad and something I would make again. Made for *ZWT6*

My husband loved this...I thought it was okay...but not something I wanted to eat again. Hence the #4 rating...He would have given it a 5 and I would have given it a 3. Made for ZWT #6 - 2010.

I really love this recipe, and almost didn't expect the seasonings to blend so well with the carrots and raisins, but it did. I do believe the lemon juice and evened things out between the sweetness of the sugar and cinnamon, and the zing of the cumin and cayenne pepper.
