The Moroccan cuisine if one of my favorites, I just love the mix between sweet and spicy and all the colorful veggies they use. When I first tried couscous with raisins as a teenager I was amazed. To me it didn’t make any sense, and yet it tasted amazing.
This salad is super fresh and healthy with beautiful colorful veggies, and mixed with the flavorful dressing and sweet dates it just can’t get any better. Since it doesn’t wilt it’s also the perfect salad to add to your lunch box!
