I wanted something different for a side dish. So,I went on a Zaar hunt! I'm so glad I found this one! I made this as directed. I let it chill for 2 hours and the flavors blended beautifully. Thanks for this great recipe, moxie!!

This was a delicious and sweet side dish! I brought it to a friend's house for dinner last night, and he couldn't stop complimenting me about it! I used cinnamon instead of the allspice, and used McIntosh apples. The spices gave it a great flavor. It was about time I tried this recipe, since I was the one who requested it, lol. Thanks for a keeper, Moxie!

I also omitted the vinegar, in favor of lemon juice, and the allspice in favor of cinnamon, but it made a great, light, sweet salad, nice for breakfast

I recall making this long back, but I did omit the allspice and the apple cider vinegar. Nice salad. I used to whisk in some yoghurt and munch it down:)

I liked this, but all the other Thanksgiving guests did not like the spices. Used our own carrots.

I needed to come up with a dish for a Thanksgiving potluck lunch at my work and I wanted something original as well as easy to prepare and with minimum fuss to offer at meal time, and this salad was perfect. I doubled the recipe to serve 8 to 10 and, in keeping with season, substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and added crushed walnuts. Well, I received compliments across the board ("Did really you make this yourself!?). All the grating did become a bit tedious and, since I prepared it ahead of time the apple oxidized some, but it was a perfect side dish to the entire meal.

This was the first time I made carrot salad and I'm not sure what I was expecting but it turned out okay. The cloves seemed a little potent with the carrot but over all not bad. Next time I may use ginger instead and add a bit of mayo to make it creamy.

This is the first time I've had carrot/raisin/apple salad. I needed a creative carrot dish for dinner, and this was it. I made only a few modifications. I used orange juice instead of apple juice and cinnamon and ginger instead of cloves and allspice. This is simply because I didn't have those ingredients on hand. Thank you for a delicious recipe!

I am a big fan of carrot salads and I enjoyed having this one as a side with my lunch today. The allspice and cloves really gave it was warm feel and made it rather different from the ones I usually have. It was sort of like a mulled apple cider dressing which was very tasty.
