Very nice; spicy and a bit tart. I messed up many things making it: No raisins in the house, only dried parsley and to top it off, I oversalted badly. And my family STILL wolfed it down. I can't wait to try making it right!

This was a nice change from the usual salad and was a great way to use up some of the overabundance of carrots in the house. It did seem to make a big quantity. One of the guests didn't like the cumin and I would probably add less of it next time it is made.
