Moroccan Bean Salad

Moroccan Bean Salad made with chick peas, brings one of North Africa's most outstanding tastes into your home. You will find a variety of subtle flavors without a single one overpowering the others.

Each time I look at a Moroccan recipe, I think of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in "Casablanca". Moroccan recipes express the lively flavors of the region better than any others. Whether it be a simple couscous or major feast, Morocco has a unique cuisine. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia
