Carrot Salad with Raisins

I sort of invented this salad tonight, but I feel like I may have had something very similar before. It's very refreshing and light. All ingredients below are approximate and should be adjusted to taste. I gave the measurements for the dressing just for an idea of proportions.

Combine:
Carrots, grated
Raisins, blanched and cooled
(Optional) walnuts, crushed slightly

Add dressing:
1 lemon
1/2 tsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp salad oil or light olive oil
a bit of pomegranate molasses (or balsamic vinegar and some brown sugar)
a very tiny pinch of ground cloves
salt
a small amount of pepper

Enjoy!

Haha this is basically my least-favorite salad next to 3-bean salad. To each his own...
