Moroccan Orange & Date Salad

This is my submission for They Draw and Cook. I did this sketch AGES ago but then it dropped off my radar, until I realised that the deadline is TOMORROW! And... very exiciting, it is getting published by Weldon Owen Publishing, so hopefully mine will be chosen!

This is one of my favourite quick and mostly healthy desserts -- very refreshing in the summertime. So now that the weather is hotting up here (25C tomorrow - woo!) hopefully I'll be able to make it soon :-). It is from a fantastic cookbook Casa Moro which has recipes from Morocco and southern Spain.

And after all that food painting.... I am hungry - time for dinner!

YUM! Sounds delicious. Good luck, I'm SURE you'll get in. Your illo has captured those warm tones of Morocco and spices perfectly.

p.s. Yes, those red flowers are from the same family, they are Hippeastrums (we call them hippies).
