Very good -- I also like to add lots of chopped parsley. I agree with the reviewer who said it needs some lemon juice.

I thought this recipe was a little flat and it was very dry too! I will try it again and use fresh out of the ground carrots, instead of bagged ones. It may have been dry because I used a grainy Dijon instead of regular Dijon and will use the smooth next time too.....sorry!

Wow! who would have thought that this combination would taste so good! It does make a lot of salad..

Tasted like France... I liked it even better after I added some fresh lemon juice. PS - 10 carrots make a lot of salad!

I ate this in France with tomato slices, cabbage, and boiled egg, with a parsley garnish. Good recipe; brings back memories. :-)
