Traditional Herb Salad with Bread and Cheese (Sabzi Khordan سبزی خوردن )

On a Persian food table you will always have vegetable or herbs salad in Summer time and different types of pickles in Winter season. These salads are a combination of fresh fruits or vegetables that usually housewives buy straight fresh from vegetable grocery.


In my country when we buy herbs, it is always sold in big bunches of very fresh herbs ( Sabzi khordan) . Popular herbs or Sabzi khordan in our Persian table includes: chives , radish. scallion . mint , dill , basil . parsley , coriander tarragon  and watercress

For cleaning these herbs, You need put them in a big bowl of cold water and let soak for 10 minutes and then drain in a colander. You can keep them fresh for few days in the fridge by wrapping herbs in a cotton towel.


You can serve these beautiful green and aromatic herbs in a basket or platter. You can have all these herbs or just get herbs you fancy, I am sure once you eat, you will not stop and eat more and more specially when you serve herbs with warm and fresh breads and feta cheese :).
These herbs are enough flavoured that no need to any dressing.
