Carrot and orange salad (a Maroque recipe)

This simple salad is refreshing, and the orange flower water adds an unusual touch.

500g (1lb) carrots
3 oranges
4 tsp orange flower water
4 tsp caster sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Ground cinnamon

1. Peel the carrots and grate finely (a good job to give a willing helper!).

2. Peel the oranges and cut the flesh into small pieces, catching the juices.

3. Mix the oranges, carrots, orange flower water and sugar together in a serving bowl, adding plenty of salt.

4. Sprinkle ground cinnamon over the surface and chill well before serving.

Serves 6 as part of a salad selection.
