Carrot Salad with Orange Honey Dressing

This salad is perfect for a buffet-it can be served warm, at room temperature or chilled. Remember: the sweeter your carrots, the tastier the salad. The mint and cilantro bring out the flavor of the carrots, but you can always substitute parsley or basil.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Boil the carrots for 5 minutes, until just fork-tender. Drain.

2. Whisk the juice concentrate, lemon juice, honey, oil, garlic and cinnamon in a small bowl. Pour over the carrots. Add the onion, cilantro, mint and sesame seeds. Toss and serve.

1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp crushed fresh garlic
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
