What’s amazing about this simple salad is the lovely fresh bite from ginger, chilli and lime juice.
¼ cup golden raisins or sultanas
4-6 carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
½ tsp salt, or to taste
1 mall hot green chilli, halved, deseeded and finely chopped
1 Tbsp peeled finely chopped or grated ginger
2 Tbsp lime juice
½ cup small mint leaves
Optional extras: plain yoghurt, ½ cup chopped salted peanuts
1 Put raisins or sultanas in a small bowl and pour over boiling water to cover. Leave until water is cool, then drain.
3 Before serving, mix through sultanas and chopped mint leaves. Taste and adjust salt or lime juice. Serve as is, or if liked, top with yoghurt or scatter with chopped peanuts.
This is good served other spicy dishes, or with snitzel and a creamy potato salad.
You can add salty peanuts for crunch, or if you accidentally make it too hot, serve with a puddle of yoghurt on top.
