Salad is quite possibly one of the most misunderstood dishes in the world. When I wrote salad, you probably thought “Lettuce” or “Something green” or “Ugh”. I thought all of those things actually. The funny thing is, Moroccan cuisine is not really big on lettuce. While Moroccans eat a lot of salad, very few of them have any greens. Zaalouk anyone? This is a recipe that goes to show that salad can be exciting, filling, and immensely satisfying. This Zesty Moroccan Carrot Salad is unlike anything you have ever had and will change your mind about carrots.
Fact: I honestly thought that adding the word salad in the title was going to bring down the value of this dish. Ridiculous.
