Snezhanka salad or Snow white salad or Milk salad (Bulgarian: Салата Снежанка — Snow White Salad), sometimes called "Mlechna salad" (Млечна Салата — Yogurt Salad) or "Tarator salata" (Таратор Салата — Tarator Salad), is a traditional Bulgarian salad, which is made of strained Bulgarian yogurt, cucumber, garlic, salt, usually cooking oil, dill, sometimes roasted peppers, walnuts and parsley.[1]

"Snezhanka salad" was popularized in the former Eastern block during the twentieth century by the Bulgarian tour operator Balkantourist.

Snezhanka (snow white) salad derives its name from the fairy tale character Snow White[citation needed] but the only reason for the name is the predominantly white color of the salad.

The Greeks call a similar dish Tzatziki.
