      Making a rich date sauce to go with...the Wall St. Journal's recipe:

        that sauce sounds great!

        lots going on with it, so i'd go for simple, but colorful, sides. some sort of assertive green, like arugula, watercress or broccoli rabe, simply steamed and dressed with some olive oil and lemon. maybe some crushed nuts on top.

        i LOVE this salad, from paula wolfert, with rich meats:

        roasted red and yellow peppers, served room temp. if you've got preserved lemon, it would make a great garnish.

        i prefer potatoes with lamb and goat. slice them very thinly and layer with olive oil, salt and dried thyme in a casserole dish. bake at 400, covered in foil, for an hour. then uncover and bake another hour, or until top is nice and golden.

          Thank you...this sounds perfect. I agree...keep it simple & found this recipe for roasted cabbage with lemon: ...different...I'm going to test it first. Love Wolfert & love parsley. Great suggestions!

            i love roasted cabbage, but prefer it with chicken or steak. i think of it as a cold-climate veg.

            that goat with date sauce has sunny mediterranean written all over it. :)

              i thought roasted cabbage with the lemon would cut thru the richness as it's simple and the lemon counters the dates. but i see yr point - mediterranean is right and like yr potato recipe...thnx!
