There was so much to absorb from the rich and involving culture of Morocco; above all else, the food was the most prominent aspect in my mind, and you can see some of my delicious observations in the pictures below. I found the sumptuous mix of fresh vegetables, rich spiced flavours, and exotic fruits (usually home-grown), blended to create an orgy of heavenly new flavours. I felt totally inspired to create my own delicious ‘Moroccan Salad’, since it seems to be such a mainstay of the local diet!
So here’s a fairly quick and easy recipe, just without a lot of the sugars, oils and breads that seem to be de-rigeur for the Moroccans! FYI this works really well with grilled chicken or any type of fish; just pop it on top to tick the ever-important protein box!
