Simple carrot salad with apricots and orange

Shop Ingredients


2 carrots, or 1 jumbo carrot
Some dried apricots (sulphur free)
1 red chilli, finely chopped
Tahini, tsp – tablespoon
Juice of 1/2 orange
Olive oil
Cumin, ground
Coriander, ground


A really simple yet satisfying salad, making use of all these sweet crunchy carrots. It seems to fit well somewhere between a raw summer salad and the warming, slower flavours of winter. Very bright and surprisingly juicy.

Simple carrot salad with apricots and orange

Shred a peeled carrot (a medium one for each person), and combine with a little fresh chilli and a few sulphur-free dried apricots snipped on top with some kitchen scissors. Mix up the dressing in a jar, combining the juice of half an orange, a little glug of oil, a pinch of ground cumin and/or ground coriander, and a teaspoon of tahini. Shake it up and season with salt, adjusting the flavours to your liking. Combine with the carrots, and Voila!
