  • Reviews

  • “Nice one, though I added some walnuts and salted peanuts and also some raisins as well to this.”

  • “This is so good. I just made it for dinner, and I don’t thinkthere will be any left.I halved the recipe as we are having another couple of salads, and I love dried fruit dry, so I didn’t soak the craisins.Next time I make a curry, I am going to serve this as a change from my normal side dishes.”

  • “I really liked this salad a lot…it’s almost like a dessert! I used only one tb. of honey, and I think it might have been too sweet if I’d used more. I used the full amount of ginger, and I added extra lemon juice. Thanks for sharing this; I know I’ll be making it again.”

  • “Great recipe and very light.I did not soak the Craisins, instead I let the salad sit in the fridge overnight.The craisins soaked up the lemon juice and it was even tastier.”

  • “Yum! I really enjoyed this salad. Nice and fresh and light, with a lovely ginger flavor. None of that heavy mayo stuff you’re used to with carrot salads…I like to be able to identify the vegetables in a dish. Almost skipped the step of plumping the craisins and am so glad I didn’t. Soaking got rid of a good bit of the sugar on the cranberries which allowed the other flavors to shine! My six year-old really liked this, too, and that doesn’t happen very often! Thanks, Miss Erin Clotfeller!”
