Think of this salad as you would a chutney. It was designed to pair with the Weeknight Kofta with Allspice and Almonds, but would be just as delicious with the Golden Rice Salad, Smoky Salmon Steaks, Indian Grilled Vegetables or just slathered on a piece of rustic grilled bread.

Richard Wrangham, a professor at Harvard University and author of Catching Fire, studies the role of cooking in human evolution.
