Tarator is a cold soup, very popular in Bulgaria. It is made from sour milk or yogurt, fresh cucumbers, garlic, and a lot of greenery. Sometimes even walnuts are added. Do not be mistaken and think that it is all about yogurt, which you can buy in any grocery store. It's about real Bulgarian yogurt, which sticks to the old traditional recipe.
The Tarator recipe is passed down from generation to generation and is deemed to be popular during the hot summer months. Simple in cooking, the soup is a real symbol of Bulgarian cuisine. You can also try Snezhanka, the salad version of tarator.
