This is a salad I lucked upon as I mixed various ingredients together. Its mix of carrots, beetroots and orange is very un-Lebanese. We have several wonderful salads, but none like this. I discovered that it was actually a classic Moroccan salad recipe after I first made it. The salad goes very well with bistilla. It is best in summer — as it is beautifully crunchy and refreshing.
4 carrots grated
1 cooked (boiled) beetroot diced
1 orange peeled and diced
1 handful of seedless raisins
1/4 teaspoon of cumin
1 lemon juiced
2 large spoons of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
- In a large salad bowl put the shredded carrots, beetroot, orange, and raisins.
- Mix well and add the cumin, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Mix well and leave in the fridge for 5 minutes to chill.
- Once ready mix well and serve cold.
