When guests sit down to the dinner table, Moroccan hosts often set out small salads to eat with bread or on their own. Paula Wolfert found this salad in Essaouira, along the Atlantic coast.

How to Make It


In a bowl, toss the tomatoes with the celery, onion, green bell pepper, preserved lemon peel and capers. Add the olive oil and lemon juice and toss again. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.


Argan oil has an intense, nutty flavor. It is available at chefshop.com.
