This is my favorite "Shirazi Salad". Actually Shiraz is a city located in southwest of Iran with a long history since 2000 BC. Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine and flowers. I'm not sure why this type of salad is named after Shiraz but probably it was first made there.
Ingredients: 2 medium tomatoes 1 medium cucumber 1/2 medium onion 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 tablespoons virgin olive oil 100 grams fresh mint (or 1/2 teaspoon dry mint) with salt and black pepper
