Carrot linguine salad

photo (3)OK, so I have taken a little artistic licence with the naming of this dish, the linguine is merely a reference to the strips of carrot, don’t shoot me.

For 4 people as a side dish, you will need:

2 fat carrots

3 tangerines

a bag of water cress

a good handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds

1tsp cumin

1tsp paprika

2tsp ground cinnamon

1tsb runny honey

1tbsp quality olive oil

juice of half a lemon

 

Toast the seeds in a dry pan. Set aside.

Segment the tangerines, ‘ribbon’ the carrots and wash the watercress. Add to a bowl.

Mix the spices, oil, lemon and honey and stir well.

Pour the dressing over the salad and stir through, cover with the toasted seeds.
