marinated carrot salad with ginger and sesame oil

A very good salad , also suitable for the fasting period . It is a salad that is served in Bessarabia at festive meals , as Natalia says, the one who inspired me with this recipe .

For this recipe we need a special grater (thank you Lena ) that cuts the carrot into thin strips, like spaghetti, if the carrot is longer or matchsticks, if the carrot is shorter. :))

The quantities can be adjusted according to personal preferences, but coriander flavor should not be missing.

In a mortar grind the garlic with salt and pepper, add the coriander seeds, crush them and then mix with honey, vinegar and olive oil.  

Now you can taste the dressing and adjust it according to how you like it: sourer, sweeter…

Pour over the carrot, mix well and refrigerate for a few hours. Overnight would be ideal.
