I like this recipe and I didn't even cook it! I had shredded about 7 large carrots with my food processor and need a recipe. I took all the other ingredients and mixed them together and poured it over the uncooked carrots. I did make a few changes to suit my tastes. 1) I used Chiptole Chile powder 2) I only used 1 Tbsp of oil 3) I added 1/3 cup of raisins. I can't wait to try the original version of this! Thanks Mrs.B!

Really good. I subbed fresh ginger and used 1/2 the cinnamon. Added a little cumin and extra lemon juice at the end.

I liked this side, but my husband raved about it. It was easy and different. I will make again.

I did like the sweet & spicy flavor of this salad. I cooked the carrots sliced and left them the tiniest bit crisp. I also reduced the cinnamon based on other reviews. Thank you for sharing your recipe Mrs B. !

Very easy salad to make and a beautifully coloured dish for your table. Would be great as part of a mezze spread. These carrots have a unique flavour compared to most, almost floral in some ways. I just felt it was a touch unbalanced but nevertheless I would try it again, making a few more adjustments to give this a bit more punch. Maybe reverse the amounts of cinnamon and chili powder or cut down on the cinnamon and add more lemon juice.

These are so good. We both liked them very much. They are sweet and spicy at the same time. I did use a little less chili powder as it's not my favorite spice, but it was just enough, I will certainly be making this one again and again

My family didn't care much for this recipe. I think that we just like the natural taste of carrots. We may have liked it better without the chili powder. I am not sure.

Wow! this was great. I really loved this and I don't usually like cooked carrots. We've made this twice in 2 days. LOL. This will be made often and I wouldn't change a thing, except doubling the recipe next time. Thank you so much.
