    I love carrots. I eat a couple a week, I always buy organic. I came across a gluten free recipe that was a wonderful fresh carrot salad called carrot raita:

    3-4 shredded or julienned carrots (the pampered chef thingey works really well)
    1 cup or more greek style or regular plain yogurt (start with one cup and add more if you want the raita more wet)
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp paprika (you can use smoked if you wish)
    Juice of one lemon and zest (roughly 2 tablespoons of juice. adjust seasonings as needed)
    1/4 cup of raisens or craisens
    salt and pepper to taste
    Chili powder, about a tsp (add more to taste. I like chilpotle)
    2-3 tsp honey

    Mix all ingredients. This can be as sweet or spicy as you like.

    This was wonderful with ribs tonight for dinner. I also had a little jicama that I added to the salad for more crunch.
