View Full Version : Looking for recipes from Tangierine Cafe

I had the vegetarian platter, DH had the platter with lamb/chicken.

Found the recipe for the couscous salad, but would love to have the ones for their hummus, tabbouleh, lentil salad and olive salad. DH's meat was good, of course I'd take those recipes, too. (Especially their tzatziki sauce-it was much better than mine is!) There are NO Moroccan recipes in the Mickey's Gourmet Cookbook :-(, and I've also looked everywhere on line. Can anyone help me out? This was our favorite counter service meal EVER at WDW!
