  • Preheat an oven to 375F. Chop your squash into uniform cubes. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil, arrange squash on sheet, sprinkle with cumin, paprika, za'atar and olive oil, and mix well to ensure all pieces are coated. Bake at a 375F oven for 20 mins on one side, then 20 minutes on the other (instead of turning all my squash pieces oven, I just switch the oven to the grill setting).
  • When squash is baked, transfer 3/4 of it into a large bowl. Using a fork, mash the squash into a uniform spread with few chunks. Add garlic, lemon juice, onion, hot paprika and salt, and stir well to combine. Add in chickpeas and stir to combine. Finally, add in remaining squash and stir very gently to combine, maybe even with your hands, taking care not to squish the remaining pieces (like I said, I like my salads to have body). Transfer to a nice serving bowl.
  • Chop a generous handful of cilantro or parsley, and top the salad with it. Serve immediately, or keep in the fridge to eat for days - this salad keeps extremely well.

Top Asked Questions

What kind of salad is made in Tunisia?
Mechouia salad is a simple but delicious grilled vegetable salad from Tunisia. Charred onions, peppers, tomatoes, and garlic are coarsely chopped, salted and seasoned, and drizzled with olive oil. Served with olives, eggs, or fish, it's pretty much the quintessence of the Mediterranean diet in a single dish.
Which is the most popular cuisine in Tunisia?
Among all Mediterranean cuisines, Tunisian is considered to be the spiciest. The flavor of most Tunisian dishes is given by this national condiment called harissa, mainly composed of chili, cumin, garlic, coriander, and olive oil. Harissa, which is the cornerstone of Tunisian cuisine, is red.
What's the best way to make a lentil salad?
Transfer the lentils to a mixing bowl and stir in the garlic, seeded tomatoes, red onion, green pepper and chilli. Add the juice of 1 lemon plus 1 teaspoon of the zest.
