Sides & Salads

Round out your meal with just the right side dish or salad.

Persian Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Known as shirazi salad, this refreshing combination calls for Persian cucumbers, which are small, crunchy and sweet. You may substitute small pickling cucumbers; just peel them first. For even more flavor, add a few tablespoons of chopped mint and scallions to the salad and some extra squeezes of lemon juice to the dressing.

Roasted Beet Quarters with Mustardy Crumbles
