This classic Moroccan side dish is served as often as possible, hot or as a cold salad, in most Sephardic Jewish homes. The natural sweetness of the carrots tempers the garlic and balances the sizzle of the pepper flakes. —David Feder, Buffalo Grove, Illinois
"I use this recipe for many family events," writes Eileen Meyers from Scott Township, Pennsylvania. "It always is well-received and prompts recipe requests." This creamy dish's surprising sweet taste comes from the addition of apricot nectar.
These thin onion and potato pancakes make a tasty accompaniment to any meal. The key to their crispiness is draining all the liquid from the grated potatoes and onion before frying. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
