No-Fuss Sweet and Spicy Carrot Salad

When I saw this recipe in my feed reader, I knew it sounded like a great way to use up the rest of the big bag of carrots I had hanging out in the fridge. It was really easy and tasted great! I boiled my carrots and then used that water to thin out the sauce for the Spice-Crusted Tofu that I made as the main course.
