Simple Carrot Salad

I hate to say it, but I am so jealous of my niece! As her junior year of college comes to a close, she is getting ready for a summer program in Morocco. How exotic and exciting is that? I had the time of my life studying abroad in Florence when I was in school and I’m thrilled my niece will have the chance to explore the culture, her independence, and the flavors of all the yummy new food!

For her Bon Voyage party, I’m sending along this delicious Moroccan-inspired Carrot Salad recipe. Just a taste of the culinary experience that awaits her…

What you’ll need…
4 cups shredded carrots
