There are probably as many versions of this tomato sauce as there are individual grill jockeys in Morocco. This one offers the refreshing taste of fresh mint.


  • 2 large ripe tomatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 1 large shallot, or ½


Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise. Grate the tomatoes through the large holes of a four-sided grater into a shallow bowl. Grate in the shallot the same way. Stir in the mint and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
