READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Shawn C

Found this recipe and it makes for a great last minute what is in the fridge salad to go along with all grilled meats! It is great for a cookout or picnic. It can be a small salad or a large one. dress it up with what vefies you like to make it your own. Use crumbled goat cheese or the traditional bulgarian sirene cheese.

Find a nice soft goat cheese if you can't find Bulgarian white cheese, don't use feta. OK, maybe if you like feta it's a good substitute, but I can't stand feta and I loved this salad when I had it in Bulgaria.
