Excellent salad. But I didn't have raisins or sunflower seeds, so I minced onions and cut some broccoli up real tiny. Still yummy.


To the person who said this salad was too dry: I have made a similar version of this, using orange juice in addition to the listed ingredients.  The sweetness of the OJ contrasts wonderfully with the garlic (although it sounds strange).  Try it!


i really like this recipe!!! i just use the carrots, sunflower seeds and raisins.  then i toss them in a little lemon juice, balsalmic vinegar (cause i love the stuff) and olive oil to give it moisture and flavor.  o ya i also throw in a little salt and pepper for spice.  awesome use up of leftover carrots!
one more thing... to the person who said it takes forever to grate the carrots, i know what you mean, im always impaitent and grate my knuckles!!! but its handy if once the carrot starts getting small stab it on a fork or something of that nature and you can grate much faster without worrying about getting your knuckles!
