    Absolutely delicious for how simple it was. First time I made as is and I found it needed way more citrus and less oil for my tastes (granted a "bunch" of carrots is pretty vague so keep that in mind)! Still super good. Next time I added red wine vinegar, fresh dill and garlic... phenomenal!! Also thought it was even better the next day so making it ahead of time for a party might be a good idea. Going to try it greek style next with oregano, lots of garlic and some crumbled feta...possibilities are endless!  -  02 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum, love this salad! I added lime juice instead of lemon as that's what I had on hand, and it was delish! I can see orange juice working in this wonderfully too. The hint of cumin gives it that warmth and depth of flavour. It went great as a side with herb roasted chicken and potatoes and of course it's a beautiful salad to look at! I will make this again for sure.  -  16 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy salad with ingredients i have. Cumin was very mild but flavorwise not stupendous. I would make it again though  -  07 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
