    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.
