Salad Shirazi

Salad Shirazi


Salad shirazi is a favourite Middle East salad prepared mainly with thinly chopped salad vegetables such as tomatoes, cabbage, carrots and potatoes. For this recipe, I have tweaked it with some radishes and some hard boiled eggs for garnishing. Although some Salad shirazi are mixed with herbs, spices, olive oil and lemon juice, I decided not to include these ingredients in this particular salad and believe me, this particular Salad shirazi still came out very nice with appetising taste you can’t afford to miss.


If you think of an easy way of preparing your own version of Salad shirazi, then this recipe is a simple guide! The Salad shirazi is classical, so easy-to-make, so refreshing, so palatable and above all so healthy.  Whether mixed with herbs, spices and lemon or not, all are very palatable in their own way. While I pretty much enjoy every bit of the vegetables used, I am particularly after the eggs and fresh tomatoes {Winks}…. But whatever,,,,, the entire Salad shirazi is a real spot on for me. 

Salad_Khorfeh.(2)Gratefully, I happened to have come across all my desired vegetables at the grocery shop near my house which prompted me to prepare this salad and I can say for sure that it wasn’t a bad idea at all! With a colourful looking Salad shirazi, decorated with tomatoes and eggs, they just make a perfect side dish. I prepared this Salad shirazi in a large quantity to ensure that it served my visitors which was absolutely satisfying, but I am pretty sure that a little smaller portion would have been just less time consuming for me.


Notwithstanding, I still prepared this salad pretty quickly after I had boiled the eggs, potatoes and cut all the vegetables because I needed them right away for my visitors and this salad came out very nice. So if you are searching for a refreshing, yummy and appetising Salad shirazi, search no further but rather follow the simple salad shirazi recipe detailed below for your own version!
