I would have never thought of garlic and pepper flakes with carrot salad. I like the sound of this.

It was really good--I know you don't like cilantro and I don't think kades had cilantro in hers. I didn't have fresh mint, but I had fresh It. parsley and cilantro. I used maple syrup (and that was literally a drop smaller than the fingernail on my pinky, but one could leave that out. I didn't want to use sugar since I've been off sugar for months). I played with it and really liked it. Started with the julienned carrots (have one of those "peelers" that makes julienne carrots faster than I can cut them), garlic, ground pepper, and Hawaiian smoked salt and then added another ingredient, tasted, added another layer of flavor, tasted it (hence the reason I only had 1/2 c left when breakie was ready). You can leave out the fish sauce--again that was a splish. Afterwards, I thought I could have added a couple of drops of sesame oil. I've been trying to use some other oils besides EVOO. I also had this bottle of coconut vinegar, but any vinegar would work, except maybe malt. I added the nuts and the chia seeds for "plating appeal." But I liked the layer the almonds added...couldn't really taste the chia seeds.

I could see using fresh tarragon instead of mint...or with some grated jalapeno pepper instead of the pepper flakes. Lots of possibilities. Or even fresh dill (leave out the fish sauce) or grated ginger...
