shredded carrot salad

I’m rather fond of carrots. Baked, spiced, pickled, roasted, dip, you name it. This salad recipe from Greg and Lucy Malouf’s New Middle Eastern Food is spectacular…

Peel 2 large carrots, then use the peeler to make long ribbons. Set aside.


1 clove garlic (I used purple), crushed with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika (I used smoked)
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
juice of a large lemon
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
drizzle of honey
splash of orange flower water

Put all dressing ingredients into screwtop jar, shake well to combine. Pour over carrots.

Serves 4 as a side dish.
