Peanuts add a wonderful texture to the salad, while the chilli pepper adds a touch of heat!
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 US | 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 US | 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 US | Canada)
