How To Make Moroccan Carrot Salad
Start with slicing the carrots into one-inch thick circles or semi-circles. Make sure you cut them evenly. The next step is cooking these sliced carrots in salted water. Once cooked, drain and set aside. We’ll add these carrots to sautéed spices in the final stage of the cooking process.
Next up, heat a little olive oil and cook finely chopped onions until they are soft. Quickly stir fry some chopped garlic cloves and sauté ground spices like paprika, ground coriander and ground cumin.
The one key ingredient that adds extra flavor to this Moroccan carrot salad is harissa paste. A traditional paste combining fragrant spices to level up the flavors. Even though harissa paste is not a part of the traditional carrot salad, I highly recommend adding it to make it extra delicious. Honestly, it makes a huge difference to the flavor and taste of this dish.
Finally, add in the cooked carrots, raisins and a dash of lemon juice. Toss. And you’re done!
I like to serve this Moroccan carrot salad over a bed of cool yogurt. It adds a nice contrast to the spicy salad.
Perfect warm salad for cooler months.
