Moroccan Carrot Salad
Warm spices, such as cumin, cinnamon, and coriander, are typical of many Moroccan dishes and marry well with the sweet carrots and currants in this salad. Timing alert: Although this salad is fine at room temperature, it’s especially good served chilled, which will take at least 1 hour.
