Shopska salad 

Shopska Salad is the most popular Bulgarian starter.

Despite the fact that the recipe originates from the region of the capital – Sofia, this salad is prepared in the entire country.

Shopska Salad is exceptionally popular among foreign guests of the country. This is due to the fresh tomatoes and the organic vegetables, as well as the renowned white cheese, by which it is garnished.

This salad is served as a starter or as a garnish to barbeque or baked meat. It is prepared from fresh vegetables, and in some regions baked peppers are also added.

The salad is made of tomato, cucumber and onion. What makes it special, however, is the topping of white cheese. The ingredients  are simple –
