These were fab. Didn't have any coriander so made them without. Will definately make again as the flavours were great. I halved the oil in the recipie to make it healthier and a bit less oily as I was serving with salmon. Lovely

A classic Moroccan salad, served with many meals. After adding the dressing leave at room temperature for an hour or so before serving.
