This brightly colored salad adds a fresh, festive touch to the meal. Blanching the carrot slices gives them a crisp-tender texture and brings out their sweetness. For best results, serve the salad at room temperature.

How to Make Tunisian Carrot Salad with Radishes and Olives

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch carrots 3 to 4 minutes, or until just tender. Transfer to bowl of ice water to stop cooking; drain, and transfer to large bowl. Stir in radishes and olives.
