I like this recipe. But instead of using onion glasses, try motorcycle goggles. My aunt Misha uses them to chop onions and she says they work wonders. Chewing gum works well too! Reply

Shrazi Salad Thats common Indian chutney minus the oil and add a chilly or 2 plus few garlic served with rice, curry or with biryani and pulao or wrap in chapati, roti or as a sandwich on slices of bread . On a sandwich is a lunch for Indian fisherman in the sea on canoe in Fiji. Reply

Tomato Excellant salad. Nicely done. You should know however that it is not strictly Persian in any way. Tomato is native to the americas and only known to Asia for the past couple hundred years. Persians 3 or 4 hundred years ago had no idea what a tomato was. Reply

shirazi salad No not the salad but the woman behind the salad. I feel such a very close bond since I have almost the same background, except that I was also born in South America, but not in Venezuela. I sometimes share some of my Sephardic recipe's with my Ashkenazi friends and they love it. We should have more of these. Reply

Very nice Maybe garlic. And since I'm not a cilantro fan, Persian parsley and a little mint? Thanks. Happy Holidays.. Reply

Yum! Thanks- what a pleasant video!
I will try the addition of salt- have never put salt in salad.
My trick is to add a capful or two of Neroli (orange flower water) and some amount of fruit like blueberries or strawberries.
The tastes become exotic,e specially if you are using lime juice with both veggies and fruit. Reply

Wow. great! It pleases me very much that a Persian recipe can be incorporated to Israeli kitchens.

It's just like sayng "Shalom Shabbat" to the Persians and to the World through this wonderful flair!

salt It would taste better and be healthier with sea salt or the equivalent. I like the type called "real salt", can be found in health food stores. Reply
