I've tried your recipe, it has a lot of taste.
Shopska and a few slices of bread to pick up the "sauce" and a small glass of rakija, the you can sit all the night ...
I recommended shopska to som friends at facebook.

It does go well with rakija.Instead of olive oil you could use grape seed oil, or sunflower oil.It makes a very good sauce to dip in with bread.Thanks so much for your comment!
