Spicy Moroccan Carrot Salad

This is one of my favorite Moroccan salads and I have yet to find a good recipe for it. I’ve tried and failed a few times in the past but this one has to be a winner. Even as I was mixing all the ingredients it started smelling like the salad I know and love, just like it is at my favorite restaurant! I love me some Moroccan food!

This recipe calls for Harissa which is actually a Tunisian hot chili sauce, so if you don’t like food too spicy you can cut this measurement in half.
