Shirazi Salad

This crisp salad makes a refreshing accompaniment to heavier foods because it’s dressed very simply with fresh lime juice. There are many variations of this salad, I like to include pomegranate and dried mint.


Serves 4 to 6
1/2 kg peeled, cucumbers sliced in half lenghthwise
1/2 kg diced tomatoes
1/2 diced white onion
seeds from1 large ripe pomegranate
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Seed and dice the cucumbers, combine them with the tomatoes, onion, pomegranate and parsley.
Add the lime juice, season with salt and pepper, stir gently to mix. Serve immediately.
