Fruit-Nut Salad

1 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup diced apples
1 tbs. grated orange rind
1 orange, peeled and segmented
1 tsp. roasted cumin powder

Toss the vegetables, fruit, and nuts together and place them on a platter. Sprinkle them with some cumin powder and arrange orange segments around the edge of platter. Sesame salt can also be used instead of cumin powder. To make sesame salt, dry roast sesame seeds in a frying pan until lightly browned. Add salt and put through electric grinder. Keep sesame salt in an air-tight bottle and use for salads, just like cumin powder. This recipe is very useful in summer, as it is rich in proteins and is easily digestible.
