In Iran, they blend honey, cider vinegar, and fresh mint to make sekanjabin. We preferred unfiltered cider vinegars in this recipe. And we loved the dressing on cold roasted vegetables. Don’t use a distinctively flavored honey, such as orange blossom or buckwheat. The flavor will overpower the delicate mint.

    My mom made this dressing for us to dip our lettuce leaves directly into the dressing and slurp it all up. Was delicious. I often make it and still eat it the same way.
