  1. This is so refreshing! We used it along side some grilled chicken sandwiches for lunch, and we couldn't stop eating it. I used a 1/2 cup parsley in this and it couldn't have been tastier. Good, good recipe, Caryn
  2. I wasn't very fond of the sugar in this recipe; I think I would omit it if I make this again. I did enjoy the cumin / lemon juice combo, and the dish went nicely with chicken thighs rubbed in Mustapha's Moroccan Melange for Chicken spice mix.
  3. Great refreshing salad. I julienned the carrots instead of grating. I added juice from half a lemon, used 1/2 tsp brown sugar and 1/2 tsp white sugar, and used cilantro instead of parsley. I'll definitely keep this one in circulation, thanks Caryn Gale!
  4. I used Splenda for the sugar and thought that for me a bit more cumin and lemon wouldn't do any harm. I had just sautéed onions in olive oil and a bit of it clung to the skillet. After allowing the pan to cool I just stirred the carrot mix into the tiny bit of residual oil and that worked perfectly. It's perfectly easy and perfectly yummy.
  5. This is so good. I used no oil and left out the parsley cause I didnt have any. Substituted Splenda for the sugar, added chopped raisins, a little cayenne pepper and more than a dash of lemon juice. It kind of tastes like carrots in lemonade with a bit of spice. It is just yummy. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Bravo! Update: This sat in my fridge as a leftover for 2 days and was even better than the first day! Just too good to be healthy for me! Thanks again.


  1. Nice light easy salad. I liked it but husband and son do not like the flavour of cumin. I used cilantro instead of parsley which I think added a bit more flavor. Good recipe Caryn.
