Easy Tahini Curried Carrot Salad

  2 rater(s)

Sometimes, you come across a salad recipe that is both incredibly flavorful and simple to make. Such is the case for this curried carrot salad, which features shredded crunchy carrots and a slightly bitter tahini curry dressing. To balance out the spice and bitterness, we added nutty raw pumpkin seeds and sweet raisins. Should you be a true raisin hater, you can omit the raisins and consider adding sliced grapes. Forego the grapes and raisins altogether if you enjoy a pronounced curry flavor!

The great thing about this salad is that it is a true salad for one. This salad will yield enough for you, and you alone. Make it as a filling lunch or as a side dish for your main course. Even if you dress the entire salad and don’t finish it, carrots are sturdy enough that the salad will still be good to enjoy the following day. It is crunchy, cool, creamy, a little spicy, and incredibly fragrant. The curry brings a unique element to the dressing that you don’t typically find in most dressings or sauces. There’s a warmth to the spice mixture, and yet it is also zesty.

Just so that we’re clear, there is a possibility that you might hate it or love it. The main takeaway is that you were brave enough to try it! Don’t ever stop trying new and exciting or exotic foods because you never know what your palate will enjoy. There are many familiar ingredients in this salad, so you get to mix the old with the new, especially if you aren’t familiar with curry spice. The ginger and lemon juice bring a slightly spice flare as well, but that sweet maple syrup balances everything out. We hope you love experimenting with these new flavors!
