Make This Fan-Favorite Salad at Home

You can make this 2018 fan-favorite, Rockin’ Moroccan, at home with the recipe created by young Roots chefs Cecilia, Sai and Pachia with Urban Roots. Top Chef contender Justin Sutherland of Handsome Hog and other fine eateries coached the team as they searched for a dish that offered elements of Hispanic and Hmong cuisines (cultures represented in this team of youth). They found the sweet spot with Moroccan flavors – a spicy mix of chickpeas, fennel, bell peppers, cumin, cilantro and tomatoes. The tahini & harissa dressing takes it over the top. “It’s the perfect mix of delicious!” according to these budding top-shelf chefs.
