Orange and Olive Salad (S'lata Botukan wa Zaytoon)

Salads are a key part of Moroccan meals; several salads with various fruits or vegetables may be on the table at lunch or dinner. Orange-flower water perfumes the ingredients without overwhelming them in this salty-sweet dish. Look for it on the international aisle of your supermarket or at Middle Eastern grocery stores. To prepare ahead, refrigerate the orange mixture and juice mixture separately. Bring to room temperature and toss before serving.
