  • 1 liter of plain yogurt (two regular containers in Bulgaria)
  • 1/2 kg pickles or cucumbers or mixed
  • 1-2 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoonful seasoned salt (like "Vegeta") or salt (use no salt if you are using salty pickles)
  • 2-3 tablespoonfuls chopped dill
  • 2-3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2-3 spoonfuls ground walnuts


Strain the yogurt (if it's thick American yogurt, use about 1/2 liter and skip the straining), and cut the pickles/cucumbers into tiny cubes. Mix all the ingredients except for the walnuts. Sprinkle the walnuts on top of the salad. Enjoy!
