AT A GLANCE
"During my residency in Morocco, the daughter of my farmer invited me out to spend the Eid festival with her family in the countryside," says Gregory. "We slaughtered one of their goats, as is traditional, with the whole family helping. Then they grilled the goat heart and liver over charcoal and we ate it in the sun with a salad of freshly dug radishes and preserved lemons. It was peppery, sour and salty and just delicious."

|02||For preserved lemon vinaigrette, combine chardonnay vinegar, sugar and preserved lemon in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer, then simmer until the mixture has a nice balance of sweet, sour and salty (about 2 minutes). Set aside to cool, then add olive oil and season to taste.|
|03||To serve, place tomatoes in a bowl and season well with salt, sugar and olive oil. Add radishes, pickled radishes and olives. Dress everything with the preserved lemon vinaigrette and garnish with lemon verbena leaves.|
