What a wonderful mix of flavors that just pop in your mouth! This slaw is so simple to make and is great for a potluck because there is no mayo. I was concerned 2 Tbsp. of fresh gingerroot would be too much so I used about 1 1/2 Tbsp. instead. For our taste the next time I'll use the full 2 Tbsp. as it won't be overpowering as I had thought. Instead of shredding my own carrots, and for time-saving convenience, I bought mine from the salad bar at the grocery store. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
