Post 18, In which I make a Shirazi salad

Shirazi Salad is one of my favourite side dishes. A recipe from the Iranian city of Shiraz, it is an awesome summer side but I tend to make it all year round. I change the traditional recipe slightly and add in avocado.

You need:
1 - 2 medium cucumbers
2-4 Tomatoes - I like Roma the best
1 red onion
1 avocado
1 lime
1tbsp olive oil

To make:
Dice cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and avocado. Place in a salad bowl add olive oil, squeeze in the lime juice and sprinkle salt.

Easy peasy.
