Korean Carrot Salad

This salad is nothing but carrots. It gets it’s name from the Korean carrot grater that is used to grate the carrots. If you don’t have one, here’s a link. The combination of spices and the grater used is what makes it so unique. Normally this recipe calls for a very large amount of garlic, however for me the amount is just too much so I have adjusted the recipe accordingly.
