I created this while trying to come up with an easy carrot salad for my Dad. It is simple, and very versatile. I can see additions of favorite vegetables to your families liking. I would also add some crushed walnuts, but Dad doesnt like them "in things" :) I used what I had on hand, but I think white raisins would present better. The dressing just blends the flavors to perfection. Something different to serve instead of the same 'ol same 'ol. Very tasty indeed!
