Preparation time: 10 minutes
Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  •     2 teaspoons honey

  2. Incorporate the beets with the carrots, add raisins and stir gently to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the dry spices, add the lemon juice and honey and whisk until smooth.
  4. Drizzle over the the carrots and beets and fold, gently until the carrots and beets are lightly coated. Let it stand for an hour before serving, so the dressing can soak into the carrots and beets, room temperature or chilled.
  5. Just before serving, stir in a few tablespoons of chopped fresh mint leaves and garnish.
