Spicy carrot salad

Serve this savory carrot salad with the ribs, sprinkled with chopped mint and sesame seeds. If you like tarragon, substitute it for mint - or add tarragon and mint in half. Just be sure to remove the stems from the tarragon!

Spicy carrot salad
  • 600 g juicy carrots
  • 1 red chili
  • 4 cm fresh ginger root
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sprigs of mint
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tbsp. l. soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. l. rice or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. l. vegetable oil
  • 2 st. l. brown sugar
  • salt to taste
  • roasted sesame seeds for serving


Step 1
Peel the carrots and cut into thin strips (the most convenient way to do this is with a Korean carrot grater).
Step 2
Peel the ginger, garlic and chili. Chop finely and chop into a paste.
Step 3
Pour vegetable oil into a small frying pan, add cumin seeds, put on low heat. Warm up, stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Add the spicy vegetable paste and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
Step 4
Add sugar and salt, add soy sauce and vinegar, bring to a boil. Pour the boiling dressing over the carrots, top with the sesame oil and stir well. Let it brew for 15–20 minutes.
