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.
  • 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.
