Hello Beauties! Today I would like to share a recipe with you, which is very special for me. I took one of the traditional salads in my home country – Bulgaria, and turned it into a vegan dish. That’s the salad “Snow-white”, also known as “Milky salad”. Some of you might be familiar with its Greek version called “Tzatziki”. I really have no intentions of going into a debate about which one is the original and which - the copycat. However, If you are so curious about the origin of this delicious salad, you can search the web, but in my opinion none of us have been there, so the answer would always be subjective.
The traditions and the national cuisines on the Balkans are so mixed up and influenced by one another, that there is no point to dwell into conflicts. I mean why can't we just enjoy the meal, right?
With that being said, let’s waste no more precious time and get on with the recipe.
Make 4-6 servings:
- 750 ml soy yogurt
- 1 - 1,5 diced cucumber
- 1 handful of chopped walnuts for topping
- 1,5 tsp dried dill or to taste
- himalayan or sea salt to taste
- 1 minced clove of garlic (optional)*
* The original recipe is with garlic but I am not a huge fan of the garlic's taste so I ended up not using it!
First peel off the cucumber and diced it. Then leave it into a strainer for 10 - 15 min to drain any excess water(you don't want that into your salad).
When the diced cucumber is well drained, place all of the ingredients (except the walnuts) and mixed them thoroughly. Place the mixture into the fridge for at least couple of hours. That will allow to the aromas and spices to mixed up together. After the salad is chilled, placed it into a serving dishes, sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top and garnish it with parsley. Serve and enjoy!
