    Yum,yum,yum!!! Even picky hubby eats! Last time, for variety, made diagonally sliced carrot coins. Should have cooked a minute or 2 longer--shot them across the table instead of spearing them onto my fork! OOPS! Served with beer can chicken, but would go with any roasted/grilled meat.

    Good, but I would cut Dijon mustard next time...little strong

    Dressing is nice, but the carrots make it seems like cold cooked vegetables. I'd like this better with cucumbers, red bells, or cherry tomatoes. I added some fresh basil, lemon juice, garlic, black pepper, and minced scallions for a little more zip. So yes, has potential!

    A nice all-purpose summer salad. Just the right touch of Dijon and sugar in the dressing, which balance each other nicely. I'd cook the green beans a minute or two longer, as well as add the bell pepper for the last minute of boiling, but the carrots were perfect as-is.
