This is a quick and easy salad that highlights both fresh and preserved Moroccan ingredients. The Moroccan red olives and Moroccan preserved lemons are essential for authentic flavor, and of course you should use vine-ripe tomatoes - it will be even more flavorful after a few hours when all the flavors have had a chance to harmonize.
2 medium ripe tomatoes, (12 ounce), peeled seeded, and chopped into small dice
8 to 10 red olives, pitted and diced

1 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped

1 small tin of anchovy fillets in olive oil, cut into small strips
