In the country of strict food traditions, choose this salad, it is unpredictably fresh with striking taste. Mechouia salad, also spelt Slata Mechouia, mostly consists of tomatoes and peppers. It can be served mild or hot—it depends on the pepper taste. If you choose the hot one, you may be eating it with lamb or grilled fish. Also, be careful with your spicy wishes—Tunisians really appreciate spiciness.
The best time to come and taste this dish is summer, the tomato harvest season.
