This is based on a recipe by chef, Jill Dupleix. It's quick and easy-to-make, and has warm flavours from the cumin and cinnamon. Great colour too!

  1. Peel the carrots and grate them coarsely.
  2. Peel the orange with a knife, removing all the white pith. Cut it crosswise into 1 cm thick slices, then into small segments.
  3. Finely chop the coriander (cilantro) and mint leaves.

  5. Make dressing and pour over carrot mixture. Sprinkle with herb leaves. Toss lightly and serve.

Just simply perfect. The cinnamon adds a tasty dimension to a simple salad. I had run out of ground cumin so sub'ed with a small tsp of whole cumin seeds. Low calorie as well so ideal for anyone watching their weight. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap May 2014.

This is a crisp, zesty salad. The cilantro and mint did a delightful dance with the citrus,cinnamon, and cumin. I will prepare it again. Thank you for sharing this salad recipe.
