Hmmm, that’s quite a bit of food isn’t it?
And guess what? That was the first course. Seriously.
The variety of salads in Morocco is astounding. They really jazz up vegetables with loads of spices, sweet and sour condiments and different cooking techniques – it’s truly inspirational.
My favourites were the unexpected combinations of beans and tomatoes with dates, apricots or prunes. As well as greens flecked with salty preserved lemon.

I absolutely love Moroccan style crockery, it’s so ornate and makes it even more pleasurable to eat a meal.
Above is my plate piled up with my first selections.
This abundant first course of salads was followed by two tagines and seasonal fruit – which I’ll show you next Friday.
We ate on the balcony which had the most amazing sprinkler system on the ceiling that sprayed a super-fine soft mist of water at regular intervals to cool us down. It was so refreshing and very much needed at the height of summer in August – even at night!
The view from up there was spectacular too. Tune in to Foreign Food Fridays next week to check it out.
