Russian-Korean Carrot Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by stormylee

This spiced carrot salad is called "Korean carrots" throughout Russia and the former Soviet republics - I have no idea if it actually is Korean, though! I got the recipe from a friend who lived in Russia for a few years and came back with a number of mouthwatering recipes.

I enjoyed this very much. I have been trying foods that are outside of "normal" for me, and this hit the spot. The only thing I did different was to shred about 1/3 of the carrots. Honestly, I was getting bored, and wanted to finish. Otherwise, I did everything as directed, and the next day the results were great. I really liked the pleasant, somewhat spicy after taste. Thanks you for this, and I will be making as many more of your recipes as I can. Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013.
