  • A generous addition of Italian parsley, fresh coriander (cilantro), and/or mint is really delicious against the carrots and peanuts. I've made a similar salad swapping the peanuts out in favor of chopped roasted and salted pistachios, and olive oil with fresh lemon juice and zest in the dressing. For that one, I always do a double hit of coriander - in the forms of both the leafy herb and the fragrant ground seed.

  • And adding a bit of grated fresh ginger is good too !

  • I have a similar recipe but mine also contains about a cup of grated chedder cheese, celery cut small for texture and a fresh taste, and a good handful of chopped parsley. I also add a couple of crushed carlic cloves to the oil and vinegar dressing - so if you can leave it alone long enough the peanuts soaks up the yummy garlic oil. It is especially nice at BBQ's and goes well with the smokey crispy meat and fish off the fire. It always goes down a treat and I am often asked for the recipe. I like it along side a nice creamy potato salad also. mmm mm
