Persian Salad

Updated on June 27, 2011


2 English cucumbers

3 Roma tomatoes

1 Red onion

2 tbsp of dried mint

1/2 cup lemon or lime juice

salt and pepper

One thing you need for the recipe I find is that you have to dice the cucumber, tomatoes, and onion as evenly as possible, you want fairly small dices.  Start off with the cucumber, the picture below is the consistency you are looking for.

Continue the same process for the tomatoes and onions.  Once you have everything diced up and ready to go, mix all of the vegetables into a large salad bowl.  You will then need to add in the lemon or lime juice, the acidity of the juice will start releasing the water from the vegetables.  Finally add the mint, salt and pepper refrigerate for about an hour.

      This looks super yummy. But I have a (maybe dumb) question. What's the difference between an English cucumber and a regular one? Thanks for the recipe, either way :)

      I love this salad, and almost all Persian food. My favorites are the stews, like fesenjan and ghormeh sabzi.
