This Moroccan-style carrot salad with cumin and cilantro is the perfect addition to dinner! It’s light, flavor-packed, and quick!
Moroccan carrot salad, known as Salatat Al Jazar, is a popular little dish throughout North Africa and the Middle East. That’s why you’ll find many versions of it–from hot (with Chile peppers), to sweet (with rosewater, sugar, and cinnamon.)
Today’s carrot salad recipe is simple and moderately spicy. Baby carrots are poached just until tender, then they are simply tossed with chopped celery, fresh cilantro and warm spices…and just a pinch of cayenne. The salad is finished with a little lemon juice and olive oil.
