OK I know some of you are going to say: are you kidding me? This looks like salsa to me, besides salads are much advanced these days to just have two veggies in it & still call it salad. Well, I know that but I have to tell you that this is a Moroccan smart salad. First, because it’s wearing the Moroccan flag’s colors; red & green which is very patriotic of this famous salad . (Forgiveness is highly expected from you when it comes to one of those silly ramblings of mine.(Blush). Yeah, I was saying it’s a smart salad. First, because it comes in many versions for different seasons: (either fresh & that means raw veggies, roasted veggies or roasted & then cooked) & each one of them is different in flavor even if they almost have the same ingredients. And sorry to tell you that you’re not lucky enough to see all versions today. I made this one a while ago & now it’s ready to show up!. Anyway, what makes it very famous in my Morocco is because it’s easy, cheap, & very yummy. Really sometimes I wonder how you could get something so tasty & refreshing out of such a short list of ingredients! I don’t want to forget to mention that a plus with this one is that even kids can make it!
You’ll need Tomato + green pepper + minced garlic + coriander/parsley ( better chopped) + salt + cumin + olive oil. Mix together & taste. What I do is just mix all & add garlic, cumin or salt if needed or until it tastes perfect! Oh by the way, mom used to add a jalapeño to this sometimes. (I can’t tolerate it)!
