Morocco has beautiful orange salads and we are making some simple ones. Quick to pull together and gorgeous with their sweet-savoury tastes, they can accompany almost any meal, or be eaten on their own. We have a Mid-afternoon Snack ritual, and these sorts of salads, along with a good cuppa something, are often just what the day has ordered.
Other Moroccan dishes include Moroccan Carrot Salad, and Baked Eggplant and Zucchini with Chickpeas and Harissa Sauce.
