This "Shiraz Salad" is ubiquitous in Iran where it is called "Salad Shirazi" and served in personal portions in tiny bowls (less that 4 oz). The trick to making this salad authentic is the dice on the tomatoes and cucumbers. Iranians eat with a fork and a spoon (no knife): The dice on the vegetables must be fine (like peas) to make it easy to eat. A good substitute for the lemon juice is "ob gureh" (a type of vinegar available at the Iranian grocery store - easy to keep on hand). If you use dried mint instead of fresh mint, rub it between your fingers to powder it. Thank you Marianne for sharing your recipe. Read More
