Salad with a cilantro base? (Afghani?)

Hello, I ate at an Afghani restaurant a while ago that served a salad in which the green base was cilantro, and it was excellent.

Does anyone know what the name of this salad is, and/or have a recipe for similar ones?

  1. Could you elaborate on other ingredients? There is a very classic Afghan salad called "Salaata"

    1. At Shalizaar restaurant, which is Persian, they serve sabzi, which has fresh herbs including cilantro, fresh cheese, radishes, walnuts and warm bread. It's not exactly a salad, but wonderful. Picture here with a recipe:

      Personally I love cilantro pesto (olive oil, cilantro, pinenuts, cheese or not). Easy to make, and delicious on everything.
