Thank You Ed! – Spicy Moroccan Carrot Salad

I’ve been on a vegetable dish experimentation binge for the past couple of weeks. I’ve made some good ones, some not so good ones – no bad ones. My family members and friends have been my tasters. One of the big hits around the table is Yotam Ottolenghi’s Moroccan Carrot Salad from his beautiful book Plenty. Won hands down over the zucchini in yogurt which I love.

So… When Victoria Goldfarb invited us for dinner on Friday to visit with her Father Ed Goldfarb (our Oaxacan traveling mate), in town from Chicago – an invitation we couldn’t turn down! I decided that in addition to taking a green salad that I would take a vegetable dish. When Vic told me that “Joel loves carrots” the decision was made. But then I realized that I had like 6 pounds of zucchini in the refrigerator so I decided to bring a zucchini dish too.

Carrots below, zucchini recipe to follow. To top off the evening Ed told me that he never eats carrots but that he ate mine and enjoyed them. What could be a better carrot compliment than one from a non-carrot eater!

Thank you Ed!
