Shopska Salad | Shopska Salata

Serves 2-4

Can a salad be seductive? Maybe not. But a salad definitely can be charming and fun, like the boy next door. That’s exactly how I feel about Shopska Salad. Like a school girl, I crushed on this happy combination of crunchy peppers, farmer’s market tomatoes, and red onion. To make the salad even better, I tossed “Barrel-Aged Feta” in the mix. This cheese is just like regular feta with a tad stronger – and a “hair” funkier – flavor. In fact, Barrel-Aged Feta is a great “first” funky cheese for those of you trying to convince a family member to “go funky.”

Ingredients

1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
olive oil
red wine vinegar
2 oz feta cheese (plain or aged), crumbled
salt
pepper

Method:

1. Combine the pepper, tomato, and onion. Sprinkle with oil and vinegar, top with parsley and season. Add the cheese and serve.

You could serve this salad unmixed, and let everyone take the pieces they want. As an option, mix in lettuce!

TIP: Shopska Salata goes great with Cevapi (little sausages)!

  1. LOVE shopska! My sister and I visited Bulgaria in August of 2004, and since both of us are vegetarians, this is pretty much all we ate! This, and ‘tomato salads’ (plates of garden-fresh tomatoes! Heaven!). I am lucky here in Minneapolis – there is a shop that carries Bulgarian feta (amazing!).

    Thanks for sharing – this is a beautiful & simple salad.
