Encyclopedia > Shopska salad

Shopska salad or Shopi's salad (Bulgarian, Macedonian: шопска салата, shopska salata; Serbian шопска салата / šopska salata, in Czech: Šopský salát) is popular in Bulgaria, Serbia, Republic of Macedonia and the Czech Republic. It is made from tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, raw or roasted peppers (preferably roasted), and sirene (white brine cheese). The vegetables are usually diced and covered in a thick layer of grated or diced sirene. In areas where the sirene cheese is unavailable, feta cheese may be used as a substitute. Lastly, vinegar and vegetable oil may be used by the consumer to dress the salad, and in restaurants, these are provided separately. This salad is often consumed as an appetizer with rakiya.

Salad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (658 words)
A salad may be served either before or after the main dish as a separate course, as a main course in itself, or as a side dish accompanying the main dish.
Salad commonly refers to a blended food item— often meat, seafood or eggs blended with mayonnaise, finely chopped vegetables and seasonings— which can be served as part of a green salad, but is often used as a sandwich filling.
The "green salad" is most often composed of a mixture of uncooked or cold, cooked vegetables, built up on a base of leaf vegetables such as one or more lettuce varieties, spinach, or arugula.
