Iranian / Persian Salad Shirazi

Autumn Leaves

"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."

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

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

I found this salad a tad bitter and not sure what I did wrong. I only cut the recipe in half, added red onion to taste, and left out the dried mint realizing I didnt have any. I did add the dill...
