Moroccan Carrot Salad from Marrakesh

Getting to Marrakech from Provence is an easy two and a half (2.5) hour flight. The Pitcher & Powell program includes two daily yoga classes, a cooking class every afternoon, a guided tour of the Medina, a visit to the famous Jardins Majorelle and the Yves St Laurent museum. The itinerary allows time for exploring, shopping in the souks, and indulging a hamman experience.

One of the recipes that we made in the first cooking class was this easy carrot salad.
