5/5 - (4 votes)

In some articles, explanations, and cooking books, I saw that it was written that the other name of Afghan Salad is salata or Shirazi-salad, and it was emphasized that this salad is also known by these names, which I must say is a misconception.

Now we, Cookery Magazine, are going to clarify to you that maybe some of the ingredients used in these three salads be the same, but their recipes are different, and some of them have a series of spices and others don’t.

Shirazi salad

Since Afghanistan has many cultural and historical links with its neighboring countries, including Iran, the way of preparing their food is also heavily influenced by Iranian culture.
Afghan salad is famous for its simple, fresh, and seasonal ingredients. Afghan families enjoy this food very much in the summer months.
Afghan salad is often served alongside main dishes, such as Kabuli Pulao, Ashak, Bolani, and Mantu.
Over time, Afghani salad has become popular beyond the borders of Afghanistan and is now enjoyed in different parts of the world.
Overall, Afghani salad is a delicious and versatile dish that reflects the culinary traditions of Afghanistan and its neighboring regions.
