Carrot Salad Chez Nous

There are many carrot salad out there but here's I did mine, inspired by Aarti Party Morrocan Carrot Salad.

First, do the lemon infused oil.

In a cast iron, pour OO just enough to cover the base and throw in some slices of lemon. I used 3 slices, which then I cut into half moon, then further into quarter.

Let it cook/fry until caramelization happens. Yeap, you read it right. After 5-10 mins, you'll start seeing the edges turn brown and starts to caramelize. Cook for about 15 mins till done. Don't let it burn!
