Moroccan Carrot and Broccoli Rabe Salad with Ginger

By MarvinJuly 8, 2016

This salad is super easy to make and tastes best when the carrots have time to marinate and absorb the flavors of the spices!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot, cut into little batons about 2 inches long and ¼ inch square
  • 4oz broccoli rabe
  • 1/4 teaspoon each cumin and coriander and turmeric, ground
  • 1/2 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • A pinch of cayenne
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs chopped cilantro and/or parsley

Instructions:

  1. Cook carrots in salted boiling water until almost tender; they should be pliable, but still crisp in the center. Do the same with the broccoli rabe. Drain and then season with salt.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together spices and ginger, pour over the warm carrots and broccoli and toss gently. Marinate for a few hours or in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. . Just before serving, whisk together citrus juice and oil and herbs. Pour over the veggies and toss gently.
  4. Taste for seasoning and add salt and lime juice as needed.

VARIATIONS: Garnish with green or black olives or use mint instead of cilantro or parsley.
