Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add carrot and salt; toss to coat. Let stand 30 minutes. Just before serving, add cilantro, mint, and chives, if desired; toss to combine.
This dish has fantastic color to add to the table with fall dishes like pork or turkey and stuffing. Kind of looks like orange coleslaw which might have been what I didn't like. I think the heat got lost a bit and would have added a bit more. Solid side dish.
