Moroccan Cucumber Red Pepper Salad

I was introduced to this easy to make salad by a woman of French Moroccan decent.   She served this every Friday night for Sabbath, and it was the part of the meal I enjoyed most. I loved how wonderful something could taste so fresh by using simple ingredients.  At times she would change it up a bit by adding what ever was fresh from the garden, maybe a tomato, or a squeeze of lemon juice and even a sprinkle of mint.  Regardless the base for her Moroccan Cucumber Red Pepper Salad stayed true to what I am sharing with you.  

I have not made this salad in years, but I do order it when I see it on a menu.  I had some cucumbers as well as red peppers begging me to do something with them and this simple salad came to mind.  This recipe is perfect for a hot end of summer city night, which was tonight! 

As I mentioned, this salad can be changed up a bit by adding tomatoes and parsley or even mint.  It is perfect served with grilled meat or fish, as well it makes for a perfectly light lunch.

Looks beautiful. I am going to start a weekly post making my Moroccan mother in law's recipes. The key to it is for her to give me the traditional recipes and not the nouveau recipes that she makes for special guests.
