Living in a Persian household for many years, we have changed this recipe & it is even better. Finely chop dill, italian parsley and mint, red pepper,red onion, persian cucumber (all a small dice) tomatoes are optional Instead of Lemon juice, use Japanese rice wine... what flavor!

Close, but not entirely authentic. Add parsley (about 1/2 cup finely chopped) and mint. Ironically dried mint (labeled as mint flakes in traditional grocery stores) works best - 1 or 2 tbsp. Also, for clarification, red onion not white onion. While lemon juice is typically used in this dish in northern Iran, try it southern style with lime juice instead. It adds a little more zing. We usually use at least one (if not two) freshly squeezed lemon/lime; 1 tbsp is too little. Finally, let the salad refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to blend the flavors. This salad makes a great accompaniment to Middle Eastern dishes such as kabob, kofta, falafel, donair, etc, but also try it with steak or carne asada. Yum.

This is a traditional dish that all Persians have had in their lifetime. The only thing missing is chopped mint, which brings the whole dish together!
