Standard Croatian Mixed Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is usual mixed summer salad you can get almost in every Croatian household or restaurant. The importance is in wine vinegar (not aceto balsamico), and it must be cooled. I do not know the reason, but vinegar does not make you thirsty during hot summer days, so it is very important ingredient.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut tomato into 1/8 parts.
  2. Cut green peppers into thin stripes.
  3. Peal cucumber and cut across into thin parts.
  4. Cut onion into thin rounds.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, add vinegar and oil (you can dissolve vinegar with some water) and cool it for 30 minutes. Serve cold.

This is a wonderfully simple fresh and light salad. It can be whipped together in minutes and goes with pretty much any main dish. I made this exactly as written. Thanx for sharing!

This was a very nice refreshing and colorful salad. I used red wine vinegar. I didn't add the full suggested amount of onion, but added just enough to really pick up the flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe, nitko.
