Fragrant spices, bright colors, sweet and savory flavors — this Moroccan salad is a feast for the senses. It’s essentially an exotic twist on the classic carrot-raisin salad, yet you don’t need any exotic ingredients to make it. The magic is made with spices you likely already have in your spice cabinet. You can serve it with my Grilled Moroccan Chicken, Grilled Moroccan Meatballs or, for a lighter meal, my autumn-spiced Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup.
