Shopska Salad


Shopska salad is a traditional Bulgarian cold salad made from tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, raw or roasted peppers and sirene (Bulgarian white cheese). Shopska salad is a very distinctive Bulgarian dish. It is named after a group of very frugal people called shopi who live in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia.

 

 

 

Kiselo Mlyako
Bulgarian yogurt

“Kiselo mlyako” is the Bulgarian yogurt, one of the things that make Bulgarians proud to call themselves Bulgarians; it is their exclusive invention and heritage that dates back many centuries. It is believed to have been known for at least 4000 years. Bulgarian yogurt is identified as a reason for longevity. Bulgaria is one of the countries with the biggest number of people aged 100 years and older. The Bulgarian yoghurt is the best yoghurt produced in the world. The only place where you can produce it and find it in its unaltered form is Bulgaria. This is due to the same Lactobacterium Bulgaricum that is used to make the Bulgarian cheese and which grows no place else in the world. If you are thinking of organic yoghurt - this is it in its purest form.

 

 DSTastiest dish of another country.

HE: Vienna sausages

DSThe best book I have ever read.
