I am notorious for taking a recipe and changing a few of the ingredients. My mother used to do this, too; she taught me to read cookbooks for ideas, not necessarily following every detail of the recipe.
On Friday, I took Ilana-Davita’s carrot salad recipe and adjusted it slightly for my needs.
Peel, slice, steam about 4-5 carrots
Due to being in a rush, I did less than the original, which said:
500 gr/1.1 lb peeled, sliced and steamed carrots
2 or 3 cloves garlic
I didn’t change this. I used 2 small cloves. Since I was using fewer carrots, my salad came out garlicky. Not a problem for the adults I was serving. The kids didn’t touch this salad.
1 tsp ground cumin
This stayed in the recipe.
1 tsp coriander
The original recipe called for paprika. I don’t care much for paprika.
1 tbsp olive oil
A little less olive oil due to fewer carrots
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper

And I have the same tablecloth–I love it!
I had already slightly altered the originqal recipe myself, something my own mother also taught me! That one used ordinary oil and vinegar. I much prefer olive oil and lemon.
I take it you enjoyed it.
Baila, glad you liked it.
Ilana-Davita, it was gobbled up. No sign of leftovers.
I learned this one from a Moroccan neighbor and cilantro adds alot of flavor to it. Used to make it often.
