This maybe a simple salad, but believe me it pacts a flavorful punch. The sweet carrots mixed with Moroccan spices and fresh herbs are a heavenly combination and a refreshing colorful addition to any of your winter meals. Warning, you may wanna eat the whole bowl all by yourself…
For the Recipe
1 pound carrots, coarsely grated (about 4 cups)
3 to 4 TB fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 TB minced green chilies, or 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 TB honey or agave
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1 tsp sea salt or more to taste
1 cup mint leaves, washed and chopped
1. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients.
2. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to marry.
3. Taste. You might need to add a dash more sea salt and/or lemon juice before serving. You can serve salad chilled or at room temperature.
