This is a quick and superbly splendid vegetarian salad which hails from Casablanca, Morocco.  

250 Ml.  Apple Cider 
175 grams of Couscous
1 Bell red pepper or horn shaped diced and de-seeded
5 tblsps fresh parsley
3 tblsps fresh spearmint or mint herb
25 grams of currants 
2 oranges segmented 
1 red onion or 1 large Green scallion 
25 grams almonds 

Dressing:

The juice of 1 orange with the juice of 1 lemon combined with 2 tblsps of Evoo preferably Italian or Spanish or Greek and 1 tsp. honey with Eucalyptus or other florals. 

1) Place the cider in a sauce pan and bring to high simmer. Slow stir in the couscous. Remove the saucepan from the heat and cover.  Leave to stand 10 minutes.  Fluff with fork.

2) Now add the bell, the herbs and currants, salt and pepper to taste, and toss to combine.
Transfer to a serving bowl and scatter with orange segments and scallion or onion.

3)  For the dressing, place the ingredients in a small saucepan and heat gently to dissolve the honey and drizzle over the salad with scattered almonds.  DO NOT BOIL THE DRESSING.

Welcome to our little corner of the culinary world, Jules.  


One place to start might be the Members Lounge, where you can tell us a little about yourself and your cooking interests.

By the way, in the above recipe, if you can find any orange type other than navels you'll be ahead of the game.  


But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket

Jules, 

Thank you very much.  Yes, it is truly sublimely refined exquisiteness.  

I had it on a recent trip to Morocco.  

I actually had prepared it with pomegranate seeds  as well, added the ingredient  and it was amazing !  
Have a lovely day. 

Yes, and please do introduce yourself in the Members Lounge ..
