The snezhanka salad is very commonly known due to its similarities to the Greek Tzatziki. Truth is that in the Balkans the recipes are very much similar, the dish is widespread from Greece, Bulgaria and even into Irag and India. Each one varying from the next but still all having a common factor. This is common as through history ingredients and recipes will have swapped hands from culture to culture and have been adapted over time. There is no real definition to where each recipe or dish came from.
The snezhanka salad can be made to use as a dip, a main dish or side served cold and can be made all year round with fresh cucumbers or preserved. Snezhanka means ‘snow white’ or also known as ‘dry tarator’.[yumprint-recipe id=’3′]Hope you enjoyed making your own snezhanka, let me know what you made to go with it and how you liked it.
