Carrot Salad with Cumin
MAKES: 4 servings
TIME: 15 minutes
HereвЂ™s a simple salad in a typically North African style that features the sweetness of fresh oranges offset nicely by the tang of ground cumin. You can also combine carrot and celeriac, jГcama, or sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes), using the same dressing. ItвЂ™ll keep well, refrigerated, for up to a day after you make it, though itвЂ™s best served not-too-cold.
11/2 pounds carrots
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin, or more to taste
01 Use the julienne cutter of a food processor to cut the carrots into fine shreds, or cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices.
02 Blend the citrus juices, oil, salt and pepper, and cumin and pour the dressing over the carrots. Toss and serve.
