Cooked Carrot Salad
This is a very simple and easy Algerian recipe, that inspires us to use spices in an unusual way. Carrots, if bought directly from the producer and cultivated in a natural way, can have such a sweet and delicate taste that you will think you had never eaten a carrot before then! Meet your local farmers and buy from them!
