30 – 40 Minutes
Harissa, a mild North African spice, adds bold flavor to vegetarian black lentil pitas, balanced with a cooling carrot-cranberry salad.
“ This was so delicious! I expected it to be good but exceeded my expectations! ”
In your bag

- 1 or 2 cloves peeled fresh garlic

- 1 lemon
- Sun Basket quick-pickle brine (apple cider vinegar - honey)

For more of a slaw than a salad, in Step 3, grate the carrots rather than slice them.
