How to make dukkah roasted carrot, quinoa and kale salad

Dukkah roasted carrot salad with quinoa and kale

My friend Jim makes a salad he calls the bogan salad. It’s just iceberg lettuce and beef tomatoes.  It’s the sort of salad that was the staple of my childhood and it’s a great name because it shows how trends come and go for ingredients (funnily enough iceberg lettuce is making a comeback).  So if that’s a bogan salad let me introduce you to the hipster salad.

This salad is chock full of ingredients that are so hot right now. There’s dukkah, there’s quinoa and there’s kale.  It also makes a star of the humble carrot which is roasted until it is sweet and almost caramelised. A dressing made from blood oranges (which are in season right now) gives a real freshness to this salad and ties all the flavours together.

The ingredients are so on trend it hurts

This recipe was inspired by a salad in Hetty McKinnon’s excellent first cook book, Community, which also teams roasted carrot with kale and blood orange: an all star combination. It was just the thing to take around to Jim’s house for lunch.
