Spiced Carrot and Orange Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Leggy Peggy

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!

Top Review by Kiwi Kathy

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.
