  • 8 Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 3 Shallots, diced
  • 2 Handfuls of fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime (2 limes if the one you have is not very juicy)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sesame seed
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Sea salt and black pepper


  • Put the grated carrots in to a large bowl.
  • Add the shallots and chopped coriander.
  • Mix together the lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, cumin and salt and pepper and pour over the carrot mixture. Add the sesame seeds.
  • Mix together and serve.



  • If you're not a fan of coriander, you could swap it for fresh chopped parsley instead.
  • If you want to make this more of a filling salad, then add some cooked brown rice or some quinoa.
  • Make this side salad in to a full meal by following the above and then topping it with some grilled chicken breast or some cooked halloumi.
  • Add a little bit of spice by sprinkling some red chilli flakes on top before serving.
  • This salad is already fairly sweet from the carrots (even more so if they are freshly grown), but you could make it even sweeter by adding a drizzle of honey.
  • Carrot salad with raisins - raisins (or even sultanas) are a great addition to this and it then goes really well with a chicken korma.
