I love this salad because it offers a unique and surprising combination of flavors. The use of harissa creates a deep and spicy taste.


Harissa is a paste of dried sweet pepper pods. You can buy it in specialty food stores or make it yourself and enjoy it in sandwiches, sauces, and more. I’ve included a recipe for it below.
