Carrot Salad With Olives, Honey and Cumin

Total Time

My DIL Leah made this Bill Granger salad for us last night. The original calls for a handful of small olives, Leah used a 375g jar of kalmata olives which was perfect. She cut the carrots into long thin matchsticks (julienne).


  1. Toss the carrots, chilli, coriander, olives and salt and pepper (to taste) in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the remaining 4 ingredients together, add to the salad and toss well again.

This was alright cold but I liked it much better at room temperature. I used a couple dashes of chili powder instead of the small red chile as I didn't have anything else to substitute. We also do not like hot spicy. The rest I followed exactly using freshly squeezed lemon juice. Made for MAKE MY RECIPE~Tag Game Ed't 10.

I have not made this recipe but had the pleasure of enjoying the last time I caught up with Jan. Such a simple recipe but with such outstanding flavours, who would have thought a carrot salad could be so wonderful. I hope to make this very soon. Thanks Jan - I love your recipes
