Shepherd's Salad

Simple salads of chopped summer vegetables are the essence of shepherd’s salad, or coban salatasi, which are popular throughout the Mediterranean. Also referred to as peasant’s salad, this dish commonly uses green bell peppers, with flakes of red pepper sometimes added for heat. The salad is accented with salty cheese, and herbs like mint and oregano may be used with or in place of parsley. The salad is great served with kebabs or other meat dishes. Pita bread could also be served with this salad.
