Asian Carrot Salad - Virtual Supper Club

This month the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is Celebrating the Farmer. I would have to say I could call my parents farmers nowdays - even though they are retired. :) My Dad and Mom were dairy farmers during the 80's but now that they are retired, they grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables. My life when I lived back near them was full of produce in the summer. I loved it!

My contribution this month is the side dish and the recipe I chose to share with you is a version of Cooking Light Sesame-Carrot Salad.  I wanted a little bit of heat so for part of the sesame oil I subbed chili oil.  I also added a little tiny bit of brown sugar to the dressing.  Love that sweet heat!
