This simple side dish is even easier when you use purchased grated carrots. Golden raisins and orange juice offer a touch of sweetness. You can also substitute diced cooked beets for the carrots.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 cups grated carrot
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Place cumin in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring frequently.
Combine cumin and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill.

Served with the turkey kefta with sweet onion and raisin sauce. Very refreshing and tasty, though I wound up going back and making more dressing and toasting more cumin. Recipe as written could use another 50% or 100% of both.
