this is the most elaborate carrot salad i ever made, and actually kind of an own invention (after browsing here and there). first roast 1.5 Tbsp sesame seed, set aside. cut 1/2 onion in tiny dices. mix juice of half a lemon with half a cup orange juice. finely grate a small piece of ginger (2cm?) into the juice. roast cinnamon, cilantro, cumin, black pepper (approximately 1/4 tsp each) and 1/2 tsp black onion seed for a few minutes. deglace with the juice. add 1 Tbsp honey. pour the mixture on the diced onion. then add half a cup raisins and half a cup chopped cashew nuts. add 4 Tbsp sun flower oil, stir well. grate 3-4 large carrots into the dressing. season with some more black pepper and salt. add 1 Tbsp parsley and the roasted sesame seeds. let it stand for at least 30 minutes. the result of it was assessed to be the highlight of the month. ha.
and yes, i have noticed the stains but you please try out by yourself polishing a filled glass on the inside while a two year old is rampaging around the table.
