  • Saute onions in 2 tbsp of oil until golden.

    This was very nice, I think you must add the preserved lemon rind it adds a nice saltiness that just finishes this of nicely with the parsley. You can taste the other flavours as well as the lemon rind, but I do feel it is a very necessary part of the dish, or maybe I just like them. I would make this again when we have a Greek supper, as it's a nice side dish to have with chicken. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.
