Carrot Salad with Cumin

carrotcuminsalad

This is a new favorite salad! The crunchy carrots with the toasty/nutty cumin and fresh herbs make it a perfect salad for any meal! I also got to use myย julienne peeler and fresh herbs from the garden ๐Ÿ˜€ Definitely add this one to your repertoire!

Ingredients:

Carrots

Shallot/Red Onion

Cumin Seeds, toasted then hand ground

Lemon, zest and juice

Honey

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

Cilantro, fresh

Mint, fresh

Parsley (flat leaf), fresh

1. Peel carrots.

2. Finely dice onion and add to a bowl with the lemon and let it sit for at least 10 minutes to ‘cook’ the onion. Then add salt, pepper, honey, and olive oil to make into a Lemon-Honey-Red Onion vinaigrette.

3. Carefully toast cumin seeds then grind to a mixed powder–theย mortar and pestle is always fun! Add cumin to the vinaigrette.

4. Combine carrots with the vinaigrette then fresh chopped herbs….massage the flavor in.

5. This can sit for up to 3 days…you want the crunchy carrot texture!
