Moroccan Carrot Salad with Orange Blossom Water

Salade de carottes à l'eau de fleur d’oranger
(aka Carrot Salad with Orange Blossom Water)

I made this Moroccan dish last night and I thought it was delicious. It has a lovely fragrant scent and the taste is delightfully unusual. I'll definitely make it again!

Ingredients :

600g of carrots (1.3 lbs)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons orange blossom water (purchased at local Indian grocer)
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
fresh chopped flat leaf parsley and cilantro leaves to garnish

Peel the carrots and cut them in half and lengthwise. Put them in a pot with just enough water to cover them, 1/2 the garlic, and the sugar. Boil until just tender. Drain.
While the carrots are boiling, mix together the olive oil, orange blossom water, remaining garlic, and pepper. Return the carrots to the pot with this mixture and sauté over low heat for a few minutes to combine the flavors.
Remove from heat, put in a serving dish, and mix with the chopped parsley and cilantro.

Yummy. Yum. Yum.
