Ralitsa's Famous Snezhanka Salad

Snezhanka (say it "snezh-ON-ka") is the Bulgarian name for Snow-White, of seven-dwarfs fame. I suppose this salad gets its name from the whiteness of the yogurt, but I'm not certain. Any Bulgarian philologists out there who can clear this up? Anyway, I'm particularly fond of snezhanka with pickles, although it's usually served in restaurants with cucumbers. Try it both ways.

Here's Rali's recipe...

What you need:

How to make it:

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!
