Carrot Salad with a Moroccan flavor

This carrot salad with its wonderful dressing containing different spices like Cinnamon, Pepper, Ginger with raisins and honey gives it the typical and the characteristic Moroccan flavor.  Since my husband loves this sweet-sour combination very much, this salad got a big applause :)
Carrot lovers could give it a try......


Carrots (big, scaled and grated) - 5
Cucumber (cut in small pieces) - 1
Raisins - 50 gms
Lemon juice - 1/2 tbsp
Ginger powder - 1/4 tsp
Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
Honey - 1/2 tbsp
Olive oil - 50 ml
Pepper - 1/2 tsp

1. Mix the grated carrots, cucumber and raisins in a bowl.
2. For preparing the dressing, in a separate small bowl, mix together lemon juice, ginger powder, cinnamon, honey, olive oil and pepper.
3. Now add this dressing into the carrots mixture and mix well.
Serve with rice or breads.

Tip : The raisins look good when you soak them in water for 10 minutes before adding into the carrots.
