Mmmm,delicious. I doubled the garlic though. We had it on the piece of grilled sourdough bread. Next time I will try to add some sauteed onions and reduce the amount of vinegar or lemon juice( it was a bit too acidic).

This was a hit at a Moroccan-themed party I attended. I didn't know until after I made the dish that the party was catered so I brought it anyway (thought we could never eat it all but, in hindsight, we probably could have!). The guests kept asking the caterer about it and she rather sheepishly admitted she didn't make it.

This is a wonderful warm and delicious salad. I used fresh herbs and lemon. Next time I'll try it with the yogurt and pita bread, I think the pairing would be really nice. Thanks.
