I hope you take some out for you before you add the citrus!!!! I guess citrus is the issue i.e., lime is out too?

I'd be tempted to toss in a little fresh chopped cilantro - cilantro has a bright flavor that might sub nicely here.

I sure could save some out for myself.

And, Yep citrus fruits and I don't get along well.
it's a bit of a bummer because so many recipes call for the addition of citrus.

Lemon is a very prominent flavor in some Moroccan and other Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern dishes ... if you can't use lemons there are some options without sacrificing too much of the flavor ... lemon grass, lemon verbena or lemon balm.

I've never tried any of the 3. but, I'm pretty sure they all have some citral properties that may not agree with my system.

Sorry, Mac - didn't realize it was the citral that you were allergic/sensitive to. Yep - they all contain citral.

[quote=Mac-n-Cheese!;517445] oranges are a no no for me, too.

I just tried to come up with substitues but can't really think of any because it is a Moroccan flavor and anything I thought of isn't Moroccan. ie. basil, rosemary. maybe sundried tomatoes in the vinegarette or a tapanade of some sort maybe using black olives or a mixture of mixed gourmet olives from the deli section, sorry I can't be of more help.

I know you must get frustrated sometimes being allergic. My girlfriend is allergic to cinnamon and so many things contain cinnamon.
