This is a wonderful Moroccan salad for summer and especially in winter when you crave that salad crunch and the salad vegetables are all puny and pale! Keeps well and is also great for picnics. We prefer it served cold here, especially with hot winter warmers. Use salt should you think it needs it and to your liking. I use a very small pinch as I do not want to draw all of the water out of the carrots but I do want a bit of the juice. c.2005

This is excellent. I recommend using homegrown or organic carrots. The dry supermarket variety just don't cut it. Great for those hot humid summer days when the last thing you want to do is cook.

This salad makes amazing changes overnight. It was a totally different and totally delicious salad the next day. It's very tangy, crunchy, colorful and a wonderful blend of flavors.
