Well, speaking of cold food and of chicken...

i have a number of recipes served cold, although some require a little cooking, at:
-- Bazmâwurd (lit. "Feast Opener") cold chicken roll-up sandwiches
-- Zaitun Mubakhkhar = Smoked Spiced Olives
-- Andalusian Stuffed Eggs
-- Shîrâz bi-Buqal = fresh cheese with herbs
-- Sals Abyad (lit. "White Sauce")
Serve with Lavash (like period bread ruqaq)
-- Jazr = Spiced Carrots (these are cooked but don't require a lot of cooking and can be served cold)

And non-period but somewhat peri-oid:
-- Oranges with orange flower water, rosewater, and cinnamon
-- Watermelon with fresh mint and lime juice

And i have two period cold chicken salads at:

I mention the chicken "sandwiches" and chicken salads, because you don't have to cook if you can buy already roasted chicken at the market...
