  • Summary

    This salad highlights the many green herbs that are an essential part of Persian cuisine, especially in spring when they are just coming into season. This salad is a crunchy, raw counterpoint to a rich Passover meal, and while some seeds are not eaten on Passover, pumpkin seeds are okay, since a pumpkin is not a legume.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
    • 1 cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 pounds carrots, peeled, shaved lengthwise into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
    • 1 bunch radishes (approximately 10 radishes), thinly sliced on a mandoline or with a sharp knife
    • 4 cups (packed) mixed torn herbs, such as parsley, cilantro, dill, mint, tarragon, and/or basil
    • 1/2 cup chopped chives
