The weather warmed up here for a couple of weeks and I started craving salads.  When Evelyne of CulturEatz invited us to visit Bulagaria for this month's challenge I immediately googled salads of Bulgaria and was hit with numerous variations of this recipe.


It is a simple variation on a salad that I'm sure most of us have enjoyed before.  This Bulgarian version combines fresh garden vegetables with a red wine vinaigrette and goat cheese.  I used crumbled feta.


As I write up this post the weather is a chilly 45* and we had snow flurries yesterday.  Summer was nice while we had it and I'm glad I took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed this delicious salad.

  6. That salad looks so fresh and inviting - I love any salad with feta cheese in it. I bet it's a great side dish for any of these other Bulgarian dishes.
