Salad Shirazi

Since we have some time left, Minoo added a salad recipe in the South Arm Community Kitchen. The salad is called Salad Shirazi and is named after a city in Persia. Shiraz is located in the southwest of Iran. Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine and flowers.


Salad Shirazi is a salad without lettuce.

    Hi Ben and Suanne:

    Hope you are enjoying the Olympics. I had an idea about a restaurant that you should try. The Market at the Shangri La hotel. My friend said that their lunch items are good (by good, she means taste and price).

      Hi Monkeysmile: Thanks for the reminder about Market. It was one of those places we always wanted to go try but was just waiting for that special occasion.
