Moroccan-Style Carrot Salad
5 mandarin oranges
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon raw honey
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pound carrots, peeled and shredded
3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Peel mandarins and remove pith. Pull segments apart and cut each segment in half all the while holding fruit over a large bowl to catch any dripping juice.
Put cut segments into a fine-mesh strainer and set over the bowl to catch any juice that may continue to drip, reserving the juice.
Remove mesh with mandarin segments and set aside on a plate.
Whisk lemon juice, honey, cumin, salt, cayenne and cinnamon into reserved mandarin juice.
