|Persian Salad Shirazi|
Simple and refreshing. This Persian side dish is often served with dinner. I learned how to make this salad in an informal Persian cooking class here in Israel and now I make it a lot. My understanding is that its named after the city of Shiraz in Iran.
In a medium size bowl toss together 3 large cubed tomatoes, 2 small style cubed cucumbers, 1 small chopped onion, about 2 T. fresh lime or lemon juice (whichever you have on hand), about 1 T. fresh chopped mint, but dry mint works too, and a few dashes of salt and pepper.
