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)
