Carrot, Orange and Radish Salad

Whenever I have no mood for cooking, I go for salad. It is always simple and filling. Most of the time, I prepare it in the morning and pack it for my lunch. Carrying 3-4 boxes to office is my style and one can find some fruits, snacks or this kind of salads for sure. I still remember one of my colleagues used to tease me for bringing these many boxes like a school kid!!!

I got to know this African salad recipe from one of the magazine. After that, I prepared many times and served them with pita breads. But till now, I haven't tasted them with orange blossom water. Try yourself with orange blossom water if you have it in your pantry and enjoy the salad.

Really nice salad. I assume that when you take to work, you don't add the dressing until ready to eat. It's a great "brown bag" effort.
