Spicy Orange Salad, Moroccan Style

"This recipe was developed in 1980 and appeared in an article in The Times by Craig Claiborne. It was reprinted recently. Olives and oranges, the article said, are one of those miracle combinations before which one should should bow in gratitude. :) Kalamata olives would be great for this."

    Delightful & delicious. This was a quick side with Recipe #266362 for lunch. I would definitely make it again. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)

    Cheated with this one and skipped peeling the oranges due to laziness. Sorry, I had to substitute canned black olives because my husband found my stash of Kalamatas (earmarked for this recipe) and ate them. Substituted Spanish smoked paprika, too but I must warn you that if you sub Spanish smoked paprika use a very small amount or else it will overpower everything. Easy and good! Reviewed for ZWT 6.

    Hi Kumsie, This is so nice you expect the salad to be kind of sweet but it's not, but it's not to sharp either, and while you eat it you can taste all the ingredients as you chew most unusual, for me anyway, but I really liked it. There wasn't anything in it I didn't like so I kind of knew I would like it. To have olives and oranges together makes perfect sense, as the grow side by side. Thank you for your wonderful recipe. Made for ZWT#6 2010.

<p>Clockwise from upper left, my dear friends Cranberry, Quincy, Kumquat and Kiwi. All of our cats were born in the wild and adopted by us. Zaar Chefs I have met so far: Elmotoo, justcallmeToni, ~Rita~, Midwest Maven, Bird&amp;Buddha (both of them) and most recently, Ms*Bindy from upstate New York:) Wonderful, sweet, friendly people and great chefs! Most relevant thing to mention here is that I am a vegetarian, and recently became a&nbsp;vegan&nbsp;(almost 100%). To put vegetables and other things not meat or fish on the table I work as an actuary (in my case anyway, a combination of statistician, number-cruncher and/or programmer). For fun I like to travel. Just came back from&nbsp;Namibia, a peaceful democracy in Africa with lots of animals! Got some terrific pictures of lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, rhinocerous, hyenas, all kinds of antelopes, giraffes and zebras. Namibia is the second most sparsely populated country per square mile, just behind Mongolia. Update:&nbsp; We went to Italy this Spring.&nbsp; We had lots of pizza and pasta.&nbsp; The pizza is so much better in Italy, particularly the crust.&nbsp; The Amalfi coast was absolutely beautiful.&nbsp; Spectacular natural scenery (Canada and Alaska are really beautiful, Patagonia in Chile is sublime, Iceland is unique) has been my latest passion as far as travel destinations but I have seen quite a few big cities too (Paris, Berlin, London and Madrid to name a few). On my bulletin board at work I keep a list of every country I've visited (other than the U.S. of course). So far I've made it to five continents: Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and North America of course. I've got only two other continents to conquer:) I don't usually have difficulty finding vegetarian dishes here in the U.S. or overseas, but finding vegan dishes is much harder. I have no kids, just cats, Kumquat, Cranberry, and more recently Quincy and Kiwi. They are purebreds, of the breed alley caticus (okay, American shorthair I guess). Our cats are not vegetarians, though my boyfriend (significant other, long-term partner, whatever) is. I am a friend of all animals both tamed and wild. In addition I am a freethinker and my boyfriend studies philosophy. Either way, we get along pretty well.&nbsp; Also, please allow me to say that my BF and I recently bought a condominium in NYC.:)&nbsp; Pet peeve? Okay, I don't like public scenes, especially parents yelling at their children, lovers' spats, etc. If it must be done please do it in private:D Participation &amp; Awards:</p>
