Because the chickpeas are pan-fried, this dish comes out slightly warm and tastes perfect that way. I’ve also eaten it room temperature and chilled, both of which were also delicious.

If you have leftovers, try serving them over a bed of couscous, or mixing it into some arugula for a quick and easy salad.

One ingredient in this Moroccan salad recipe that you might not be familiar with is Ras El Hanout. Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan spice blend made from a mixture of coriander, turmeric, cardamom, black pepper, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

It’s one of my favorite spice blends to keep on hand because it adds instant Moroccan flavor to whatever you’re cooking. I use this brand.

Both the quality and the price are incredible!
