    Persian Spinach and Yoghurt Salad. This recipe was given to me by a friend married to an Iranian. It is light and refreshing, and goes particularly well as an accompaniment to grilled chicken. Serve with Pita Bread

      This is quite delicious! I tried it out because I wanted something new that I'd never tasted before and it turned out great. We had chicken kebabs and rice pilaf with it. I guess you can compare this a little to greek tzatziki (spelling?). So if youre tired of the same ol' cucumbers in greek yoghurt, I suggest trying this instead. It will probably also work well as 'mezze' or anti pasti with fresh pitas... Will be making it again some time soon -cheers!

      Weeelllll, I had no Greek yogurt OR plain yogurt (pooey on my planning skills, huh?) so I used sour cream. Given the time of year, I served it warm. I thought it was like really great creamed spinach. Great stuff!!
