Salat Shirazi (Persian salad)

July 17, 2010

From our June cooking group event.

  • Roma tomatoes
  • Green onions
  • Cucumbers
  • Parsley, fresh
  • Limes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

This is pretty free-form – whatever combination and ratio you like. The veggies can be chopped coarsely or finely. Some people add radishes, radish leaves, mint, feta cheese, or other options. Best mixed an hour or two before dinner, and the feta should be added just before serving or –even better—on the side. Do not refrigerate before serving, as this ruins the tomatoes.
