Crunchy Carrot Salad

"This is a nice change from a regular salad. It makes a nice side dish. Raisins could be added if desired. To save time, make this in the morning and serve it at night!"

    Wonderful and so easy ! This came out well. Also because its potassium enriched and low in cals. Thank you Tebo for sharing this and also for taking time to send me your comments. Since you liked "Potato and Egg Salad for the Lazy", try this "Chickpeas, Tomato and Walnut Salad". I really like the recipes which are easy to make, nutritious and taste great !! You stay in a beautiful country and I am going to be there next year. Smiles Mini

    This isn't a bad salad, just not to our liking. Its very easy to prepare and has very few ingredients, which is always nice. I'm glad we tried this, it just wasn't for us. thanks for sharin.

    So easy and such a nice change from all the cloyingly sweet carrot salads. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I tried cutting the sugar back to 1/2 tsp. and then added the other half back in. The only change I made otherwise was to use olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Delicious!

    What a delicious, flavorful change from the standard sweet, mayo-based carrot salads. This has a nice early tang on the tongue which gets mellowed by the carrots' sweetness. I second the suggestion to use a food processor, and I'd point out that it's important to get the lemon juice onto the carrots fast to prevent browning.

    This was a delicious carrot salad! I made it as directed, except that I left out the parsley because I didn't have any on hand. It was so easy, especially when grating the carrots in a food processor. The flavors all mingled very well together, and it was a nice change from mayonnaise-based salads. I have a feeling I'll be making this frequently!

    This salad was a wonderful surprise, I thought it would be ho-hum, something I could eat between meals to fill me up a little. Was I WRONG! I loved this salad very much! I used splenda instead of sugar and used enova oil instead of the vegetable oil, and garnished it with chopped cilantro. I am going to make this again this weekend!
