Carrot, orange and beetroot salad with cumin

By September 01, 2017 , , ,

The flavours in this salad bring back memories of a trip to Morocco many years ago. I always remember that after a meal they would serve orange slices dusted with cumin. I like to combine sweet and savoury and in this dish I've combined the flavours of beets and carrots backed with cumin and highlighted with a tart orange dressing. This salad works better if you julienne the carrot and beetroot. You can grate it but it does end up as mush and the colours bleed into one another.

1 beetroot peeled and julienned
1 large carrot peeled and julienned
5g whole cumin seeds toasted
1 orange peeled and segmented and cut into small pieces

20ml orange juice
20ml rapeseed oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Place all the dressing ingredients into a jar, place the lid on and shake well to combine

To assemble the salad
Mix the carrot, beetroot, cumin and orange segments in a bowl
Sprinkle with the dressing
