two pounds of carrots for two people

I wound up with a two-pound bag of organic carrots, and I'm looking for ideas to use them. I'd rather not cook them, as it's 100+ degrees here these days, and I like them raw better anyhow. Do you have a favorite carrot salad, or some other dish that uses raw carrots?

  1. I'd just eat the carrots straight. You could also juice them if there are problems chewing.

      +1 on the juicing. Of course you have to have a juicer.

    2. You could also make dips to dip the carrots in, such as hummus or tzatziki.

        Or beer cheese
        Or spinach dip

      2. I like to shave carrots into cold peanut noodle salads - if they're in long strips, they sort of mimic the noodles while providing a textural context.

        1. This is really tasty. You need to use the stove top but not for long so perfect for hot days.

            That salad was good. Ere is another one but I can't find it, it had shredded carrots, cilantro and a lemon dressing
