How to Make Salad-e Shirazi
- Dice all vegetable into a small dice. Place into a bowl and add lemon or lime juice, olive oil, fresh herbs and salt and pepper. Toss gently and serve.
- This is a staple in Persian household. I have a friend that hates cucumbers that will eat Sharzi. I sometimes leave the olive oil out and just use the freshly squeezed juice to dress the vegetable.
