Things to know about Moravska Salata Recipe

Since the day red peppers came to Balkan, Serbian people have been using them in almost every dish day make. This dish is no different. The recipe originated from the region around the river Morava, the third biggest river in Serbia. So that’s where the name came from. This very simple dish is very popular in Nis and Leskovac. You can serve it as a side dish with Rostilj (Serbian BBQ) or Pasulj, but it can also be an entrée when served with cheese. One very important part for Serbian people is that this salad goes super well with alcohol, especially Rakija, and you can always make it while making Ajvar.
