« Everyday Cook — hopeful postscript! | Main | The Tomatillo Season »


This looks delicious! I wish we had a better garden, but in my neck of A2, we seem to grow deer, and little else as a result.

I do have some container gardening going on atop my balcony, but mostly those are herbs and my tomatoes are taking forever...

By the way, those things that look like black beans? They aren't. They're miniature olives. And awesome!

Such an interesting salad, with a wonderful combination of flavours. Bookmarking this: thanks for sharing.

Ewwwy.......don't delete my comment it was ewwwy.

I thought it was un-pleasant, although I wonder if several changes in the manner in which it was prepared would help........

Have you guys actually tried making it, or are you guessing from the photo? I'm not a huge fan of bell peppers (that's an understatement) but I liked the salad when we tried it.

It certainly was interesting, although I would consider not adding the lemon juice, if you want to taste the developed flavors of the vegetables. Anything with high acidity chances the entire taste of a dish, and in this instance doesn't work well with the spices it calls for. I'll keep it without the lemons!

Kevin, I don't recall the lemon juice being particularly noticable. I've made it twice and tested it on four people, and even Joe who hates peppers liked it. Perhaps my amounts are off - I was guessing on what I used. A bit of lemon or orange juice is a very common ingredient in North African salads.

Besty, without the benefit of comparing our versions, I don't have any particular advice for you. :-( If you do like North African dishes in general, it could be different preferences. I've made some North African salads that I will not likely make again because they just didn't work for me.

We would like to feature this recipe on our blog. Please email [email protected] if interested. Thanks :)
