This simple salad is all about the sweet carrots, bright mint leaves, and the dressing with the earthy, nutty flavor of lightly toasted cumin seeds.
3 large mint sprigs
2 large carrots, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
½ tablespoon agave syrup
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
⅛ teaspoon finely ground black pepper
¾ teaspoon whole cumin seeds, lightly toasted
Pick the mint leaves from the stems and coarsely chop. Small leaves can be left whole, if you like. Put in a bowl with the carrots.
Put all of the dressing ingredients, except the cumin seeds, in a Mason jar and shake to combine. Stir in the cumin seeds.
Drizzle the dressing over the top of the carrots-mint, while tossing, adding just enough to lightly coat.
Divide among plates or serve family style.
