Moroccan Carrot Salad - A tribute to Danial Saraga of Haggis and Herring

I have been part of the Secret recipe club for a few months, and I have had the opportunity to visit many blogs through the monthly challenges. Haggis and Herring a lovely blog written by Daniel Saraga and his wife is one such blog that I have visited, so its with great sadness I am writing this post as a tribute to Daniel who passed away suddenly on Friday. The secret recipe club has organised this special edition of SRC where members are cooking from Daniels blog as a tribute to him and his passion for food. Our thoughts and prayers are with Daniels family and pray that god gives them strength to deal with the grief in the coming months.

I have chosen this Moroccan style carrot and coriander salad recipe from Daniels blog. It  is a simple yet delicious salad and thanks to Daniel it will be one that I am going to add to my collection and prepare it time and time again.

1 tablespoons fresh chopped coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
