The refreshing parts of every meal in Montenegro are salads. They are extremely popular because Montenegro abounds in vegetables from which the salads are being made:
Tomato salad – it is being prepared from largely cut parts of the tomato with onion, with a topping made of oil and wine vinaigrette. In the south areas they are adding olive oil or even olives.
Green salad – is prepared early, already in spring from the leaves of green salad and the spikes of scallions. Oil, vinaigrette and salt are added also and it is being served with some easier dishes.
Sour cabbage – a real specialty whose preparation is being done in the same way for centuries – in big barrels, pressed with stone in order to get the brine – a sour liquid – excellent for a hangover.
