Bulgarian dishes
Shopska salad

Shopska salad (shopska salata) is one the the most popular salads in Bulgaria.

Serves 4


4 spring onions

4 medium size tomatoes

half a cucumber

2 green peppers

100g of bulgarian ‘cerene’ white cheese (or feta)

chopped fresh parsley

olive oil


optional: olives


Grill the peppers until the skin starts to darken and crisp.

Let cool, covered, for a few minutes. Then remove the skins and the pips.

Tip: here in Bulgaria, rather than heating the grill, the peppers are often browned on an electric hot plate.

Cut them into small cubes, along with the onions, tomatoes and cucumbers.

Place the prepared ingredients into a large salad bowl.

Season, add chopped parsley, olive oil and mix

Cover in grated white cheese and enjoy!
