This delightful Moroccan dish is one of my favourite salads to serve with spicy food as it is refreshingly juicy with a hint of salt from the preserved lemon, sweet from the date, and sour from the pomegranate molasses. Because of this subtle mix of flavours, I often prepare it as part of a spread of dishes to eat with whisky – it really complements the flavour notes of many Speyside whiskies, particularly ones from The Glenlivet distillery and the Chivas Regal 18.
