Moroccan Salad of Oranges with Radishes

Moroccan Orange and Radish Salad

Salads are one of two types. First we have the very simple salad, simple flavours and few ingredients. Fresh and vibrant, they are made to accompany dishes that are complex in composition and flavours. The second sort, the more complex Ottolenghi-style salads, contain a whole range of ingredients and layer upon layer of flavours. They are made to be a meal in themselves or to go with some very simple or plain dishes – a few slices of grilled halloumi, for example.

This is the first type – simple, with just two main ingredients and a simple dressing. It is so fresh and wonderful, a little tart from the lemon juice, and made to get the appetite really humming. It is Moroccan, and contains cinnamon in the dressing. So unusual.

Similar salads include Moroccan Orange and Carrot Salad, Moroccan Orange and Olive Salad, Orange and Walnut Salad, Orange and Olive Salad with Mint and Basil, and Halloumi and Orange Salad.
