Carrot, Raisin & Almond Salad

I am thrilled with this recipe.

OMG!!! I even did my first test recipe (much smaller than original). It was a bit sweeter than the final recipe, but it tasted good. I am overjoyed at the success of this recipe. I am never sure of what I am doing. I worried about ruining a 600g bag of shredded carrots. I use a new spoon for everything because I worry about cross contamination of who knows what. I wash my hands after almost every step.
