    This was delicious! I served it for lunch and it was enough to satisfy everyone. I didn't bother with the cress and just added extra lettuce leaves. It is amazing without sour cream but if you're a fan of the stuff you would probably want to add it.

    Nice but I don't think I would make it again. For me it wasn't worth the effort.

    This was a fantastic, tasty salad. My changes; I used lime instead of lemon, and omitted the greens and sour cream. I also prepared the carrots and dressing up to the oven step the night before. I found the dressing on the baked carrots to be almost enough and didn't really use the extra citrus juice that much. Also, mine was a little bitter. Next time I will omit the citrus from the bake and just use some fresh orange or lime juice at the end.

    This same recipe appears in the March 2013 edition of Food & Wine magazine, although the book version, true to Jamie's style, is less specific with some of the measurements and ingredients. You can definitely make this salad your own and still have great results. It's a salad full of rich flavors, and makes for a substantial side dish or light meal; you just need to plan for enough time to cook the carrots (a little over half an hour total). You can improvise with any number of greens, and I enjoy adding pumpkin seeds.

    I've made this twice now, though only the roasted carrots. I found that I liked only 1 tsp of cumin and about 4 garlic cloves. I also added a few coriander seeds and substituted fresh Serrano for the dried chilies. I really liked the white balsamic I used, though I'm sure the vinegars called for would be great too.

    This salad has such a great flavor and is satisfying as dinner. It has so many layers of flavor and texture, I would have been very happy to be served it in a restaurant. I left off the sour cream, it really didn't need it.

    This is such a delicious salad. Can serve it as entree sized portions or put it on the table with mains. I serve it as a meal on it's own. I also added 2 tablespoons toasted hazelnuts for added texture & protein. I didn't think it needed the sour's great as it is. I LOVED the different coloured carrots - orange, purple & yellow. So pretty. EXCELLENT. Great for any vegetarians :)
