Raw Shirazi Salad

  1 rater(s)

Similar to an Israeli salad, Shirazi salad can be enjoyed on its own or as an accompaniment to a larger Mediterranean meal. If you love tomatoes and cucumbers, then this is the salad for you. The crisp bite of the Persian cucumbers share the stage with the powerful mint and parsley flavors. If you feel like adding some extra health fats, cut up and avocado and toss it in the mix.
