sweet moroccan carrot salad

A simple and healthy salad, this is the perfect complement to a more traditional savory salad – not only does the texture and sweet taste provide a nice contrast to a veggie salad with vinaigrette, but the colors make a nice foil too – having colors that contrast well is a nice way to spice up the look of your table and carrots are a great way to do it.

The recipe is very simple, too, obeying the rule that the best recipes are often those with fewer than five ingredients…

Sweet Moroccan Carrot Salad

Adapted from the recipe of Zahara Ait Ben Hmad

You’ll need:

4 carrots, washed and peeled and grated finely
1-2 apples, washed and peeled and grated coarsely
A dab of sugar or honey, to taste
A splash of water

Combine all ingredients and mix, adjusting for sweetness. Best to let it sit for a while before serving, as the juice from the apples will mix in better this way (if you have juicy enough apples, you will need very little water and sugar for this one).

this salad is grate!!!
