    The first time, I followed the suggestion of another poster and baked the carrots for 20 minutes at 400ยบ to soften them and release the flavor. The second time I made this was for a picnic, so I prepared it the night before. I upped the cumin and lemon juice. It was delicious and the guests loved it!  -  04 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I would give this recipe 4 stars as is. I agree that it lacks zing but it is a great base recipe & is easily adaptable to taste. I have made it twice now & added 1 tablespoon each of cider vinegar & sugar & a bit of minced onion. Let it marinate overnight for sure & stir it up as often as you remember so that all the veggies get a good soaking in the delicious juices at the bottom. I like it just as well without the feta & don't feel like it's missing anything. This one is a keeper. Thanks BFR610!  -  26 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this as written. It was practically tasteless. The ingredients are definitely healthy but it lacks zing. In my opinion- could use some doctoring.  -  01 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
