Moroccan salads feature heavily in Moroccan cuisine and are usually served as first course. There are many variations and each restaurant will have a speciality or perhaps 12 !! Luckily recently my friend M and I decided to share a first course when we ate at Restaurant Morocain at Hotel Jardins de la Koutoubia - have a look here at this beautiful place. Twelve mini tagines came to the table and as each lid was lifted a different salad was revealed. I loved the presentation as much as the lovely food. Amongst the little offerings my favourites were the pickled vegetables, a cold carrot collation and the traditional aubergine salad.
