Prepare yourselves. Moroccan Tomato Salad is basically the salad of your dreams. Get your knife skills ready and then get ready to eat this on the side of everything!
okay - I'm not even exaggerating one bit when I tell you that this salad made an appearance at every single meal while we were in Morocco. Lunch - yes. Dinner - duh. Sometimes even at breakfast on the side of an egg tagine. Safe to say I developed a full on addiction to this bright, fresh and colorful salad. It's my new everything and it actually goes with EVERYTHING.
A lot of food in Morocco is quite brown and it's all pretty much stewed, so this bright salad was the perfect way to brighten everything up. You can put it over your tagine, eat it on top of some couscous, throw a spoonful on top of some flatbread... you name it. The Moroccan Tomato Salad is the new side salad / condiment of my dreams!
Are you making the entire Moroccan dinner party spread - here's the full menu for you!

How many people did you have for
Has anyone made this as early as 8 hours before? What really is the maximum refrigerator time?
You really don't want to refrigerate tomatoes for more than an hour or two as their flavor is diminished in the fridge! But you could make it a few hours early and let it sit somewhere cool / in the shade / covered
I made it the night before, dont add the salt and lemon juice till about an hour before you are ready.
Looks so delicious!!!! can this be made a day ahead or will it make too much juice?? thank you!!!! will be making your whole morrocan feast this weekend for my husband's family cant wait !!
you could make it morning of, but I think more than 8 hours ahead of time would be too much
Thank you :-))
