  1. Looks great, and I will be trying it later today. You comment on it’s “anti-inflammatory boost”, it would be great if you would also give an IF rating to the total recipe. Thanks.

  2. I am going to make this tonight, sounds very refreshing. I’ll be subbing the mayo (gross) for greek yogurt. Other carrot salads I’ve had really benefitted from finding the freshest, sweetest carrots. So, depending, this may be better as a seasonal recipe.
    Luckily, where I am, we have fresh and local produce available just about year round.
    Trade off for the traffic… I guess… Thanks.

  3. Yum!
    2017 thought: Definitely going to add some turmeric to this in order to boost the anti-inflammatory properties. I may also use the despicable pot of vegenaise that’s been sitting untouched in my fridge ever since I had a short-lived love affair with Goop. The curry powder will mask the flavor (or absence of rather.)
