One of the most popular recipes is the Moroccan carrot salad, widely known for being spicy and rich in flavors. Moroccans are very creative with their salads. There are at least dozens of Moroccan salad recipes and they are all super tasty. Luckily, you don’t need to be a chef to cook this carrot salad, it is even easy to make and perfect for beginners.
Moroccan carrot salad is also very popular among vegans who find inspiration for the many delicious vegetarian Moroccan dishes, as most traditional dishes are healthy, balanced and use great quantities of vegetables. Besides, even if some Moroccan recipes use meat like in the Moroccan tagine and the Moroccan couscous, the meat can be easily skipped and the dish will still be delicious and tasty.
Personally, this Moroccan carrot salad is one of my favorite Moroccan food. The best part about this dish is that it takes less than 15 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes to be ready. It can also be frozen. So, if you have busy days like me, just prepare a big batch and freeze small portions. Each time you want to enjoy your Moroccan carrot salad, just take as many portions as you need and let them naturally unfreeze for a couple of hours at room temperature. You can then slowly warm the carrots in a pan on low heat. And voilà!
