One of the most loved salads in Bulgaria that is used as a great starter for any meal is the Shopska salad; this salad has a great mix of peppers, onion, cucumber, tomatoes and Sirene cheese (very much like Greek Feta), parsley, oil and seasoning.

A typical main course is stuffed peppers and Kufte. The peppers have there stalk cut out and the seeds taken from the inside, the pepper is then stuffed with a filling of choice from cheese, egg and bacon to rice and vegetables before the stork is put back on the seal the pepper and baked.
