“Who’s gonna work for the working man…
for the working man”

Sometimes life is just too stressful and busy, and days are just too long. Most of us work really hard – some of us work all day – and coming home after a long day at work and having to think about dinner and about next day’s breakfast and lunch can be a real challenge.

So “Who’s gonna work for the working man?” Well, let me tell you: This recipe will!

You must be thinking: “But a salad??! Is she serious?”. Yes, a gorgeous and healthy Moroccan inspired carrot salad that is one of my all-time favourite salads. I know that those beautiful summer days are gone for good and I know I should be sharing comforting recipe ideas with you …. And you say “But it’s cold and I am tired I want something warm!” …. Oh well, I have an addiction and I can’t seem to be able to resist a beautiful and colourful salad just like this one… I can’t get enough of fresh, light and easy salads. And this flavourful salad highlights a lovely veggie that is normally relegated to a supportive roll.

So, If you are really exhausted and don’t wanna spend too much time in the kitchen? Let me tell you – this salad is the perfect option for a quick and light meal. It won’t take more than 10 minutes to prepare and you’ll have enough time to cuddle your pets, or vegetate on the sofa and read a good book.

Comforting enough? Believe me it’s an amazingly easy salad, which works perfectly as weeknight dinner or a lunch and it will keep for at least 3 days in the fridge (it gets better every day).

However, if you’de rather serve this delicious salad as a side dish, why not pairing it with this super high-protein and yummy tofu and quinoa croquettes? For the full recipe, click here.
