Carrot Salad with Cumin and Garlic



Carrot Salad with Cumin and Garlic

This Moroccan salad, adapted from “Arabesque” by Claudia Roden (Knopf, 2006), makes a tasty side for meats and seafood.

5 large carrots (about 11/4 pounds), scraped

4 tablespoons olive oil

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Juice of one lemon

Cut the carrots in quarters lengthwise and then cut each quarter in half to produce sticks. Boil in salted water until tender-crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes and drain. Heat oil in a large skillet and add carrots, garlic, cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Stir-fry over medium-high heat just until the garlic begins to color. Sprinkle with lemon juice and chill. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
