I adore this salad, I make it throughout the year as carrots and oranges are readily available. I make versions with blood orange, clementine’s or satsumas when they’re in season, or heritage carrots. But this tastes just as good with regular carrots and oranges, they don’t need to be anything special. Its so fresh and zesty and just works all year, if you want a light lunch, or a fresh starter to a rich main. It can also work as a lovely side dish, I have often eaten it alongside spanakopita. The coriander adds fragrance, and the dressing just brings the whole thing together. At Christmas I add pomegranate seeds, pistachio nuts and use clementine’s. However you have it,  it’s always a winner. Just double up if needed.
