Persian Salad, also called Shirazi Salad, is a simple cucumber and tomato salad that’s loaded with herbs and dressed in lime juice and extra virgin olive oil.
This is a slightly different version, my own twist to it with a few additions that make the salad just a little more exiting and I think you’ll love it.

- 1 cucumber, small diced
- half of a red onion, chopped

How to make the Persian Salad
