This Moroccan Carrot Salad combines crunchy carrots with an exotic blend of spices and a simple dressing made from olive oil and tangy lemon juice.

Don’t want the heat? You can reduce the cayenne pepper, or omit it altogether.

Chopped fresh cilantro adds color and bright flavor to this carrot salad. Not a big fan of cilantro? Swap in parsley.
