Sabzi Khordan Salad

img_7760

Sabzi Khordan is a must have platter for Persian eating.  It’s basically a giant pile of fresh herbs, radishes, walnuts and feta.  I Americanized/Roxanaized this by taking all the components of this platter and tossing them with baby kale and a little orange blossom dressing.  The result is a fresh and light salad.

I used mint and green onions but basil, parsley or any herbs would be great.  I went for kale, as always, but mesclun greens or spinach would also be delish.
