Very unusual and a great way to use up the spearmint we've got growing in our garden! I must admit that I like the carrot orange and peanut salad I posted some time back better as a use for shredded carrots, but this is some good!

I only had about a cupful of baby carrots, so made a mini-version, and...oh WOW!!! I wish I could tell you how good this is after it sits and let the flavors "swap around," as Huck Finn said, but I can't, because I have eaten it all up, right out of the food processor! Now, without changing any of these ingredients, what I did was make a creamy pate'-like spread out of it all, simply by pulsing that blade many times. Let me assure you all, it makes a FAB spread for toasted pita wedges! Thanks, MarraMamba!
