Citrus salads, whether sweet or savoury, are very popular in Morocco. As in many parts of the Middle East, most meals end with a vibrant array of seasonal fruit: ruby pomegranates, oranges, apples, grapes, loquats, bananas ... It’s hard to provide a recipe for such a basic salad since it really should come about by following one’s instinct and mood, so regard this as more of a suggestion than a hard-and-fast recipe: it’s now up to you to bring it to life in whatever way you choose. If you want to attain more savoury notes, add thin slices of red onion, a creamy cheese, olives, a dash of paprika and a drizzle of argan oil. The combination of fruits and vibrant colours will revive you at first glance, let alone at first bite. Serve with some ginger yogurt, if you like.
