Fig, Carrot, and Cabbage Salad

October 27, 2020

I love this salad because it features figs as well as other flavors commonly used in Mediterranean cooking. Carrots with cinnamon and cumin is a featured Moroccan specialty, along with olive oil, garlic, lemon, and fresh herbs.  Pumpkin seeds and cabbage great for your health, and maple syrup make makes a delightful sweetener.  This is a nutritious and delicious salad!
