It does look messy, but many of my favourite Iranian dishes do, and they taste wonderful. So I knew I had to do this one for my husband's birthday party, and it was a huge hit! Thanks to you and your Sushiman for sharing it!
This is exactly what it purports to be a rather messy-looking salad that nevertheless tastes great. The trick is cooking the mushrooms and expecially the onions first, something I wouldn't have thought of. I'll probably try it this summer substituting fresh tomatoes from the farmer's market fot the canned crushed ones--I bet it will taste even better and maybe look a little prettier.
