Carrot salad with mint and sweet spices!
Is so good, so fragrant and so pretty it could almost double as dessert. Not your same old carrot salad, that I can tell you!
The magic of Moroccan ingredients:
Dates, mint, orange flower water: Yum! No wonder we ate our veggies growing up!
- 1/2 cup pitted dates, packed, chopped fine
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons orange flower water
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pound carrots (about 8 medium), grated fine (use the food processor)
- ¼ cup mint leaves, packed, sliced very thin
Combine the first set on ingredients in a bowl, making sure the dates are thoroughly immersed. Let the mixture soak about 15 minutes. Add the carrots and the mint, and toss. Serve at room temperature.
