If you wanna spice up your carrot salad I'd recommend adding bit of paprika powder, not too much but maybe a tsp, it taste amazing.

I prefer the deviled egg salad to this, tasty but if you want something more filling i'd recommend the deviled egg or tuna with garlic toast :)

Made it a day before and saved the leftovers, turns out this is even better when cold, 5 stars from me.
