Salad-e Shirazi

Posted on: April 8, 2009

I was having a great time in the kitchen since being able to purchase fresh parsley from the market the other day, and after using some of them in my corn chowder, I decided to try making my own Shirazi Salad. It’s a salad made primarily of cucumbers, tomatoes and onions.  I remember reading somewhere that this type of salad is a favorite in the Middle Eastern countries.  Here’s a photo of the final product:

I ate the salad during lunch with my pan fried tangigue (Spanish mackerel), which I have pictured below, while Mom and Pointyman had it with rice and steamed shrimp.

I really enjoyed the salad, especially since the lemon juice I used gave it just the right amount of tanginess.  The rest of my family will definitely be seeing more of it in our future meals together! 🙂
