Julienned carrots are tossed in a sweet butter sauce sweetened with cardamom and citrus, and served piping hot. 

The crisp carrots, sweet brown sugar, and tangy citrus make this simple carrot salad an instant classic.

Cardamom Carrots
2 lb carrots, julienned

In large skillet melt butter. Whisk in brown sugar, cardamom, and orange peel. Cook, and stir over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Add carrots to skillet, toss to coat, and serve hot.
