It is very good hot or cold. I gave some to a friend, & she put it over cooked rice. I took it to a luncheon, & it was a hit with "experienced" cooks.

This was very tasty... the carrots have just the right crunch. I made this to share with friends, and I think it might actually get my husband to eat carrots more often.
