The summer season tomato season has started right here at casa ciao! My first little best tomato has just been picked, and remaining night I incorporated it into considered one of my preferred center-eastern recipes, Salad Shirazi.
Salad Shirazi is a famous traditional Persian salad that originated the town of Shiraz in Southern Iran. The most important ingredients are chopped cucumber, tomato, onion and a little lemon juice. In Iran, it’s miles eaten in the summer season as a aspect dish and on its very own. It?S a crisp and fresh facet dish for summer time that is so clean to make!
