*Shopska Salata is a very popular and common in every household or restaurant in Bulgaria. Their meal always starts with this salad and paired with Rakia  or vodka. The saltiness of the feta and the sourness from the vinegar paired with the Rakia or vodka, it just opens your appetite. Shopska salad derives its name from the regional group called Shopi living mostly in parts of Bulgaria. My husband made this salad for me when we were dating. Let’s just say I fell in love with him and the salad was just a bonus. enJOY!!!
