I loved this salad! How fun and different and lovely-looking. There are recipes all over for this salad (starting with Bon Appetit
and then here
)…I just modified based on what I had in my kitchen. There are a few too many ingredients in the original, and I can’t imagine that I really missed out on the coriander seeds.
Recipe (serves 2)
- 8-10 medium sized carrots + olive oil for roasting
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1 avocado + a drizzle of lemon juice for preserving
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- Juice from 1 large lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, preferably toasted (skillet on low for 3-5 min)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss the carrots with plenty of olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Roast for about 25-30 minutes, depending on your carrot size.
Mix the dressing ingredients – 1 T. olive oil, 1 T. red wine vinegar, juice from one lemon, and thyme. Slice the avocado and drizzle with any excess lemon juice. Toss the carrots, avocado, dressing, and sesame seeds in a bowl and serve.
