I was unsure about this recipe. The combination of oranges and olives seemed stange, but my family enjoyed it very much. I've made it twice now, both times as salad with other Moroccan meals. I substituted fresh orange juice for the Orange-flower water.

Salad is nice but bland. Took it to a church potluck & it didn't all get eaten. With the left overs I tried adding slivers of purple onion. Still didn't light my fire. By the way, I followed recipe exactly. I've had orange flower water in my kitchen for twenty years so that wasn't substituted. It might need regular green olives instead of the more subtle ones that were suggested.

I gave this recipe 2 stars because the difficulty of finding the picholine or cerignola olives and the orange-flower water. I never found the orange-flower water (used orange juice) and substituted another olive. We did enjoy the salad and I'll play with it and make it again for a family meal.

Who knew the combination would be so curiously satisfying? Used morrocan oil cured olives. Yum!
