Core Moroccan Salad with Chickpeas and Tuna/Salmon - Moroccan Cooking Class

Serves: 1

Difficulty: Easy

  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced to about 5mm or 1 medium tomato and 6 halved cherry tomatoes (more visually appealling, but still use 1 tomato as you need the tomato 'juices' to help with the dressing)
  • 1/4 small green capsicum, diced small (or use red if that is what you have)
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped very fine
  • 1/4 small red onion, sliced very fine (or use white, but red looks better)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • fresh coriander, chopped, about 3 TB
  • fresh parsley, chopped, about 2 TB
  • lemon juice, a 'squirt'
  • 1 small tin of good quality tuna or salmon in spring water, drained
  • 1/2 cup tinned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • salt and pepper to taste


Toss all and eat.
