  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the lemon slices for roasting: Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Drop the slices in very hot water for about 2 minutes. Remove and drain well.
  3. Place the lemon in a bowl and toss with the date sugar.  
  4. Mix together well and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes or until you see the lemons have dried out a little. This process will intensify the taste of the lemon. Over roasting will turn them black.
  6. When the lemons are done roasting combine all ingredients except salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss together, add salt and pepper to taste.
