Snezhanka salad or Snow White salad or Milk salad (Bulgarian: Салата Снежанка), sometimes called "Mlechna salad" (Млечна Салата — Yogurt Salad) or "Tarator salata" (Сух таратор салата — Dry Tarator Salad), is a traditional Bulgarian salad, which is made of strained yogurt, cucumber, garlic, salt, usually cooking oil, dill, sometimes roasted peppers, walnuts and parsley.[1][2]

Snezhanka (Snow White) salad derives its name from the fairy tale character Snow White[3] but the only reason for the name is the predominantly white color of the salad.
