Oriental Carrot Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Whisper

This recipe is delicious! The sesame oil gives it a nutty and unusual flavor. I just made it for a picnic I'm going to. After tasting it, I know it's a salad I'll be making many more times. From the cookbook Lean and Luscious and Meatless.

We all loved this delicious salad. I did not have green peppers and I had to use some yellow and red one. The color combinations were magnificient!
The super touch to this salad was the sesame oil!
I tried this salad just after preparing it and some hours later: Both very good I cannot say which one would be better.
