Mast-o-Khiar is one of my all-time favorite dishes. It’s a cool, refreshing mix of yogurt, cucumber, and mint.

It’s a side dish that’s served alongside almost every Persian meal, sort of like Greek Tzatziki, Indian Raita, or Turkish Cacik.

I always make a huge batch of it to have on hand and enjoy for several days after the initial meal.

Leftovers are my jam!

And it’s super handy to store said leftovers in the quart carton that the yogurt came in.
