FOODS OF TURKEY

 
 

Shepherd’s salad is made from whatever the shepherd has available and fresh, so its ingredients may vary. Serve it with a delicious fish, freshly grilled or a bean stew, and perhaps along with a glass of wine, or a “kadeh” (glass) of rakı- a traditional Turkish drink. It doesn’t matter what you serve it with, we hope you eat it with good company.
