  • About

Cucumber, tomato, and onion salads seem to turn up whenever meats are run through by skewers and seared smokily over fire. Here’s the Iranian version, named for its birthplace, the city of Shiraz, and robustly flavored with parsley, fresh mint, and lime juice. Serve this salad with any of the Persian kebabs in this book, accompanied by pieces of lavash or pita bread for dipping.
