Take a break from the same old coleslaw with this zingy carrot salad.
This is a vibrant, crunchy and aromatic salad that would work just as well a side as it would packed up in tupperware for a healthy lunch. Mustard seeds and cumin seeds are often used as the base of an Indian curry and add a beautiful depth of flavour to this dish when mixed with the sweet honey and zingy lime to create a speedy dressing. Dry frying spices is a great way to release the aromas – especially if they have been sat in your cupboard untouched for the last year. The final sprinkle of sesame seeds adds texture to the salad and they are a wonderful source of fibre.
