vegetable wraps - meat patties
Serving tossed salads at the Persian meal table wasn't as common as is it nowadays. More common, Persian cuisine features side dishes in the vein of pickled vegetables and yogurt mixes. As far as leafy green vegetables, Persians serve cold crisp snips of parsley,green onions, and radish leaves arranged in a small basket with a few radishes and chunks of feta cheese.

Salad Shirazi recipe
Iranian Style Chicken Salad - This is my all time favorite chicken salad. However, is it fair to call it chichen salad, when it also includes potatoes, eggs, carrots...should I go on?
Be aware, this salad is like money, it disappears quickly. Great for parties, great for lunches or for when you need something to snack on.
