SHOPSKA SALAD




SHOPSKA SALAD
A Bulgarian favorite that is just the most beautiful, colorful salad.  I have made this salad several times through the years and thought I should share it.  These sorts of salads are great for summer.

4 Roma tomatoes, OR
  medium-sized tomatoes, finely chopped
4 green onions, chopped
Few olives, finely chopped (optional)
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1/cucumber, finely chopped
1/cup chopped fresh parsley, (125 mL)
  (optional)
Dressing:
2 tbsp olive oil (25 mL)
1 tbsp white vinegar (15 mL)
1/tsp salt (2 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)
1/cup grated Feta cheese, OR more to taste (75 mL)

In large, shallow casserole dish, combine tomatoes, green onions, olives (if using), green pepper, red pepper, cucumber and parsley, if using.

Dressing:  In cereal bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Pour over vegetables and toss to combine.  Sprinkle with Feta cheese.


Helpful Hints:  The green and red peppers may be roasted and the skins removed, if desired.  I liked the parsley in the salad, however, my husband and youngest son did not care for it.
