Voted best salad in taste of Europe, this traditional Bulgarian recipe is easy to make, very healthy and delicious. We use apple cider vinegar with the mother for an enzyme and probiotics (good bacteria) boost. The chopped vegetables, extra virgin olive oil and feta cheese make this recipe also rich in protein fiber, potassium, calcium, iron and vitamin C.
