Spring Carrots

What would be something nice to serve with spring carrots to make it
salad -y? I need an extra salad for something I am doing and have bought the carrots and am wondering whether a nice dressing would lift it or fresh beans or peas or something. Any brilliant ideas that would help me. Can't see anything on google that doesn't involve grating etc. TIA

petmacorpltd, when you Googled did you find these recipes, which I found from your thought of adding some fresh beans to the carrots .

IMO they look nice and easy enough to make too, so hope they help. :-))

Thank you so much and thanks on the cheesecake. I have decided to make the blueberry one after all! You are wonderful.

500g small carrots, trimmed
100g whole almonds

In a large frying pan heat almonds, toss frequently until golden. Remove to a mortar and cool.

In same pan toast cumin seeds 2 min until fragrant. Add to mortar, bash lightly to break up the almonds a little.
