Jen Kindrick's Moroccan Carrot Salad

By Jen Kindrick

Carrot Salad with Moroccan spices

Note: I usually find myself inspired by recipes but I rarely use one so it is a bit of a challenge for me to write one!

Ingredients:

1 bunch of fresh carrots, washed and sliced on the diagonal
2 garlic scapes, sliced on the diagonal
1 Tbs. Ras el Hanout or substitute a 1/2 tsp each of cumin and coriander
Just a pinch of cayenne
1 Lime
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbs. chopped Parsley
Salt to taste
