Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 lb. carrots
    2 small thin-skinned oranges (I like tangelos)
    fresh snipped chives
    fresh mint leaves

    Dressing:
    2 small garlic cloves
    1 green chili
    1 red chili
    2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
    1 tsp. black mustard or poppy seeds
    1 tsp. cumin seed
    1 Tbsp orange juice
    1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    Sultanas or raisins (approximately a handful)
    Salt & pepper

Directions

This takes approximately 20 minutes to prepare, and serves 4-6.


Grate the carrots with a course grater. Peel the oranges, removing all of the white pith - do this over a small bowl to catch the juice to be used later for the dressing. I like to use a sharp knife, peeling them like I would an apple to remove it's skin. Cut the oranges into very thin slices and arrange on a large serving platter. Scatter the chives and mint leaves. To make the dressing, peel and thinly slice the garlic. Slice the chilies and remove the seeds. Heat half of the oil in a small pan, add the garlic and cook for approximately 2 minutes until just golden brown. Add the mustard and cumin seeds cooking over a high heat for 1 minute stirring continuously.


Remove from heat, add remaining oil and allow to cool.
