    i was very dubious of this recipe, but i had all the ingredients, so i tried it and was so pleasantly surprised! i added mint instead of cilantro, because that's what i had, and the mint-carrot-peanut combination is much greater than the sum of its parts. try it, i bet you'll like it too!  -  03 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very nice salad to serve with spicy curry dishes. I followed the recipe exactly, but instead of adding dressing right before serving, next time I will add and let chill for a few hours in refrigerator. I found the salad nicer the next day after the dressing had time to marinate the carrots. Next time I will also try to add some raisins.  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Such as fabulous salad. A great combination of flavors! I omitted the sugar and it was just fine.  -  02 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
