Harissa Carrot Salad Recipe

This spicy-sweet side salad is bursting with the flavors of Morocco: smoky harissa paste, earthy chickpeas, salty feta, and fresh cilantro and mint. Even if you're sensitive to heat, you'll like this one—the natural sweetness of the carrots mellows out the kick of the chiles.
