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.

We served this with broccoli and tofu over rice, it was a great combo. Will definitely keep the recipe, thank you.

Really enjoyed this salad. We served it as an accompaniment to fish. Nice taste and I didn't think it needed more sugar either. I did find there was plenty of dressing for the carrots and also my grater made them a bit thin so they were in danger of getting soggy if they marinated too long. Next time I might use a food processor to make little match sticks instead of the thin texture my grater gives. Nice salad over all though. Would make it again.
