carrot and raisin salad, Morroco style


I love carrot and raisin salad. I grew up eating it with Miracle Whip. But these days I prefer to use a vinaigrette. Today I experimented by using paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne to flavor the whole thing. And the vinaigrette was lemon juice and olive oil--applied with a light hand. I also added very thinly sliced celery. It is beautiful to look at and crunchy, healthy, and satisfying to eat. I have recently put on a little weight due to end-of-semester stress and busyness, and I'm hoping that by eating more vegies this week and cutting down on the alcoholic beverages and fatty desserts I'll drop those pesky pounds.
