I am constantly looking for new ideas for recipes. I explore the internet with search strings like “ethnic barbecued chicken” just to see what comes up. This week it was Djaj Bil-Bahar Il-Asfar.

I came upon a recipe for Iraqi barbecued chicken and I wanted some Iraqi side dishes to go with it. I found a recipe for Iraqi pickled vegetables and another for Iraqi tabbouleh. Just about every country in the Middle East has a variation of this salad of grain, parsley and mint dressed with lemon and oil. Other additions to the basic elements can be tomatoes, cucumbers, red or green onions, olives, and for the Iraqi version pickled artichoke.

I was making Iraqi barbecued chicken and I wanted an Iraqi vegetable side dish. Many Iraqi vegetable dishes include eggplant, which I cannot digest. One recipe I found, that is frequently serve at Iraqi meals, is turshi, mixed pickled vegetables.
