Bulgarian Sharena Sol (Шарена сол)

The Bulgarian spice “Sharena Sol” is a mix of many local herbs and has many uses in different recipes. It adds a unique and interesting flavor to any dish.  “Sol” means Salt, but Salt isn’t a required ingredient. There are many variations on the recipe of “Sharena Sol”, particularly from region to region. My favorite is described below. That’s the one my mom makes every summer.
Ingredients*:
  • summer savory
  • paprika
  • basil
  • cumin
  • fenugreek
  • Optional: ground pumpkin seeds
  • Optional: Sea Salt

If you decide to make it yourself, simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. This mixture is best created to personal taste so it is up to you which ingredients will be more, or less. The order I gave you is my favorite.
*The order of the ingredients are in order from most to least of that ingredient.
