Carrot salad with Harissa dressing

This salad is so easy to make, has such beautiful colours and tastes delicious. Serve as a side or crumble some feta cheese on the top and serve with crusty bread as a main.

1kg carrots peeled and thinly sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

50g Harissa paste ( if you can’t find harissa you can use a mild chilli paste)

1 clove garlic, minced

Juice and zest of ½ lemon

2 stp sugar

Salt to taste

Freshly chopped mint and or parsley

Crumbled feta cheese- optional

Thinly slice the carrots  into long ribbons, I do it using a vegetable peeler, and place in a bowl. Heat the oil in a small pan, add the garlic and harrisa and cook lightly, add the lemon juice and sugar and cook for a further minute. Pour over the carrots and toss well.

Let it stand for an hour ,plate up, garnish with chopped mint  ( top with the crumbled feta- optional)
