Tagine Tonight

Hello all. Tonight is the night for the Quick Chicken-Tagine. Hope everyone will have an opportunity to make it. Sorry I didn't get some side dishes posted last week. Here is one I intended on doing. I do apologize for the delay.

This really is just a chopped up veg salad, almost a salsa. A nice option to go with the Tagine.

Green Pepper and Tomato Salad
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray
Prep Time: 10 minutes ● Yield: 4 servings

2 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1 ½ inch dice
3 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 small onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
½ cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
½ lemon, juiced (1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Combine peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro in a bowl with your fingertips. Add the juice of the lemon evenly over the salad. Next, sprinkle a tablespoon of vinegar over the salad. Drizzle the extra-virgin olive oil over the salad, add the salt, pepper and cumin. Toss again. Taste to adjust seasonings and serve.

I look forward to hearing comments from those who will be making the Tagine. Please let me know if you have any questions.
