What I love about this salad is that it’s so easy to make, so classically Persian in taste, and yet so modern. What’s more, it’s a complete meal for vegetarians. I prefer to use thick Persian yogurt or labneh.


  • 3 Persian cucumbers,* or 1 long seedless cucumber, peeled and grated
  • 3 cups (735


  1. Combine all the salad ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly, adjust the seasoning to taste, and garnish.
  2. Mix in the garnish and serve with toasted bread or as a side dish. Nush-e joon!
