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.
