The flavor of this salad comes from the fresh fruit juice, which makes all the difference. We advise letting it rest a little before serving. If the oranges you’re using aren’t sweet enough, replace the lemon with another orange.
- 4 cups carrots, grated
- 3 oranges
- 1 lemon
- 1 Tbsp honey (opt.)
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon, ground
- 1 tsp orange blossom water
- Mint leaves
Place grated carrots in a bowl. Juice oranges and lemon and pour into the bowl with honey, salt and half the cinnamon.
Place the salad in a large, deep plate. Sprinkle on the orange blossom water and remaining cinnamon. Decorate with mint leaves.
