Salad Shirazi - Persian/Iranian Cucumber & Tomato Salad

Salad Shirazi is quite a popular Persian salad which is prepared just with cucumber, tomatoes and with few chopped onions, this salad finally served with a dressing prepared with lemon juice, mint leaves, salt and pepper powder, i tried this quick and easy breezy salad sterday for our lunch, the addition of mint leaves gives a superb flavour to this salad..Its seems  Persian people serve this salad along with rice or with meat dishes.

  24. In Russia we cook such salads very often but use oil or sour-cream instead of lemon juice. Also you can add any greenery not just mint. I like parsley for example. Nice blog for inspiration, thank you for sharing.
