Does anyone know of any good condiments to use with carrots. I dont like them plain that much. I also dont care for ranch dressing as a general rule.

I actually like my carrots with vinaigrette... especially anything like raspberry-walnut vinaigrette. Especially if you throw in some spinach and pomegranate seeds to make it a salad.

Exactly what I was going to suggest.
Raspberry (Walnut) Vinagrette,
or an Asian-Ginger dressing.

They are pretty good when cooked with just a tiny bit of melted butter. Remember that your body needs some fat, just not very much, and if you are going to eat solid fats, natural is better than artificial, ie butter is better than margarine.

cooking tends to take some of the vitamins and the like out of vegies, but the real concern is I am using baby carrots as snack food as suggested by some. They are very filling actually, but a bit to bland.

Garlic salt or onion salt. You might try pickling them. It takes a little time, but it sounds really interesting.

Pickled carrots? Mom, I love you. However, that is one of the grossest things I have ever heard. I am going to go throw up now.

Peanut butter maybe.

hmm, seems antithetical to the whole healthy snack thing, but I could be wrong.

Peanut Butter is a good source of protein and has HDLs in it. Its a fairly healthy snack.

I prefer low fat peanut butter on purely taste level.

As do I. Jif Reduced Fat is what I go with.

Ginger dressing. They often use it in sushi restaurants on their salads.

Yarha, Look for It in the Refrigeration Section

certainly an idea worth looking into.

Peanut butter is one of the better ones, but if you can find the right carrots (namely the ones that aren't dry and powdery looking) it shouldn't be necessary.

the baby carrots I have been eating are not dried out as near as i can tell but there are a bit to bland.

Vinagrette, peanut butter, and ginger dressing - I second all three. Ginger anything goes great with carrots.

Carrots dipped in humus is a favorite snack of mine.
