Continuing our banned countries cooking extravaganza, I present a delicious Sudanese salad, salaat jazar. It’s a great illustration of the principle that the whole is bigger than its parts and is refreshing, tasty, and very nutritious.
1 pound carrots (I used rainbow carrots)
juice from 4-5 lemons
4 large garlic cloves, pressed
1 tbsp ground sumac
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika
1 tsp ground coriander
1 small handful fresh cilantro
Slice carrots and steam them for a few minutes, until just cooked and still al dente.
Mix all other ingredients except the cilantro.
Place sliced, steamed carrots in bowl, and pour dressing over them. Mix well. Then, sprinkle fresh cilantro.
