From Tagines & Couscous, Gillie Başan, Ryland Peters & Small, 2010.
If you have some flavoursome ripe tomatoes then there is nothing better than a tomato salad. This one I found in Tagines & Couscous is well worth trying. It is juicy and has a great tartness to it from the lemon and capers.
The tomatoes need to be skinned and deseeded then sliced. A red onion also needs to be sliced and the rind of a preserved lemon sliced into thin strips. These are mixed in a bowl with some olive oil and lemon juice. It has some seasoning added and you can set it aside until you are ready to serve it.
At serving time add capers and chopped parsley, coriander and mint. If you like it sprinkle paprika over the top.
It’s so easy to put together and has such a wonderful mix of flavours.
