Familiar flavors combine in unexpected ways in this sophisticated salad.
What to buy:
Preserved lemons are a popular ingredient in Moroccan cooking. They’re preserved in a salt-and-lemon-juice mixture and are sold in jars. Look for them in gourmet grocery stores or online.
Beverage pairing: Palliser Estate Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand. The Martinborough region of New Zealand, where this wine comes from, is known primarily for its Pinot Noir. But the Sauvignon Blancs from here are excellent, and this one provides both crispness and beautifully dry flavors of herbs, apricots, and tropical fruits, which make it a lively partner for the crunchy, herbal salad.
