Things to know about Urnebes Salata Recipe

Urnebes Salata is called a salad but it is more used as a sauce. In Serbia, especially South Serbia, this is very popular and eaten with BBQ. The name means chaos and it is given because the salad is often eaten late at night in restaurants when everybody is already drunk and the party is at its peak. That time of the night is called “Urnebes” and hence the name. This dish varies from mild to very hot depending on the amount of chili paprika that you use. There are many variations of this recipe but the main ingredients are the same cheese, oil, and chili.
