AZERI OLIVE-WALNUT-POMEGRANATE MEDLEY (Zeytun Perverde)

“A delectable Persian appetizer made of green olives, walnuts, and pomegranate arils. If pomegranate is not available where you are, or if it is out of season, do not fear, a great substitution is dried cranberries. You can play with the amount of ingredients and adjust them to your liking. Try this medley with wedges of lavash flatbread, or scooped onto crackers or as is. From AZ Cookbook.”
