Serbian salad called sopska salata, is a very typical salad for the entire Balkan region. This salad is light and refreshing. If you use cheese this salad is called Sopska or shopska, if you don’t it is called Srpska salata or Serbian salad.
The lightness of using sunflower oil for the dressing is nice. In Serbia this salad is typically served as a side dish, not as an appetizer. Of course, you will want to use the freshest ingredients and if they come from your own garden, even better.
Please note that I only put on a little bit of cheese for photography purposes but when making it you should pile it on. Typically you would not be able to see anything underneath the cheese when this Serbian salad is served.
Make sure to use the freshest ingredients as farm fresh is most popular in Serbia.
