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.
Chicken Avocado Salad
A delicious salad that is great for a quick snack, but attractive enough for entertaining. You can even have it as a meal in a sandwich, or as a salad atop a lettuce leaf.
