Peel and grate the carrots on the large side of a box grater. Place in a large bowl; add the ponzu sauce. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then quarter lengthwise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), sesame oil, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, and half the soy sauce
