Iranian / Persian Salad Shirazi

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
13

"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."

One half of a red onion was too much. Benefitted from the addition of feta and kalamata olives. Skipped the sumac, added celery salt.

Great for barbeques! I had to search out the ground sumac, but I felt it was worth it as it gave the salad an interesting tang. #Allrecipesallstarscanada #TasteofSpring

I added a splash of red wine vinegar and a quarter tsp of pressed garlic. I didn’t have the mint and I only had dried dill. It was still awesome. Mmmmm... even my 7 and 11 year old liked it!

Made exactly as directed except that I used fresh mint instead of dried, and added some pine nuts that I needed to use up. A great side salad for spring!

Healthy, like it - used fresh mint to boost flavor - wondering if my Sumac was old - when eat this in restaurants it has more flavor. Liked it - will try tinkering with it
