This carrot salad is something that we have on our salad bar at my second job, which is an all vegetarian falafel spot. It's one of my favorite items that we offer. This recipe that I'm sharing with you is not the recipe used there, but it was fairly simple enough to figure out the ingredients and toss it together at home. The carrot salad has ties originating it to Morocco, but it is also frequently used in Israeli and Middle Eastern mezze platters.
This dish is simple and contains few ingredients. It still has plenty of flavor. though. The sweetness of the carrots contrasts nicely with the pungent, earthy flavor of the cumin. This salad still manages to retain a light, fresh quality with the use of parsley and lemon juice. This blend of aromatic spices makes it a perfect companion to any late summer or fall meals. Of course, it's traditional use as part of an appetizer spread with hummus and other pickled, mediterranean vegetables is also lovely. However you choose to pair this salad, I hope you enjoy it! It's one of my personal favorites
