Bulgarian Shopska Salad - 2.5 net carbs per serving

Low carb doesn't have to be all meat. Bulgarian shopska salad is one of our summer favorites. Several years ago, I learned the recipe from my brother's wife who is from Bulgaria. Making this with home grown garden tomatoes makes it extra good.


Makes 6 servings at 2.5 net carbs each.


Ingredients:

2 medium tomatoes (6 net carbs)
2 cucumbers (3 net carbs)
1 cup crumbled or cubed feta cheese (6 net carbs)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped Fresh Parsley (optional, add 1 net carb)

Instructions:

Chop up tomatoes and cucumbers. Either crumble or dice feta. Mix all ingredients. Depending on the brand of feta, you might want to add a little salt.

I am also Bulgarian and we eat this salad all the time. I usually add equal parts olive oil and apple cider vinegar to it before adding the feta to make it extra-delicious, yet still healthy.
