Sirene - Bulgaria

The word "sirene" has a lot of meanings, although we're not talking about the mythical female creatures from Greek mythology here but CHEESE! Sirene is from the family of feta, and although it originates in Bulgaria, it's popular all throughout Southeastern Europe. Briny, crumbly and tangy with citrusy notes, you should try it in something like this Shopska salad, made with tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and a generous smattering of Sirene to finish.
