Carrot Salad

A good carrot salad is a cheap and easy dish to make any time of year. This one goes beautifully with lamb koftas or barbequed meat or halloumi. Make it ahead of time, as this salad is great once it has had time for the flavours to soak in.

½ cup raisins
½ cup orange juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp sherry vinegar
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tsp cumin seeds
½ cup cashews, chopped
3 medium sized carrots, julienned or grated
1 spring onion, chopped
½ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup coriander, chopped
½ cup mint, chopped

Soak the raisins and orange juice for at least an hour.
In a dry pan toast the sesame seeds, cumin seeds and chopped cashews until golden.
Mix the olive oil and sherry vinegar in the bottom of a large bowl. Add in the carrot along with all the other ingredients. Toss well.
