Simple Black-Eyed Pea Salad
Every time I make this, I am amazed at how delicious it is and wonder why I don't make it every night. I always get rave reviews for this simple salad. If you remove the seeds and ribs from the chilies there is really no heat.
Iranian / Persian Salad Shirazi
An excellent light side salad to accompany a heavy Persian meal or any meal really. Sumac is the red bitter spice usually served for sprinkling on kebab. It's available at most Middle Eastern stores, but if you can't find it just leave it out. I like to dice the veggies very small about 1/4-inch. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
