But let’s just take a look in Wikipedia: ” Though the salad’s name comes from the region called Shopluk, in fact, it was invented in the 1960s as part of a tourist promotion. … At the time, leading chefs from Balkantourist invented Dobrujan, Macedonian, Thracian and several other salads with similar names, which were associated with different ethnographical regions. … Because the area of Shopluk is divided among Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia, chefs in Macedonia and Serbia began later to contest the Bulgarian origin of the salad. ” If you know something different, and can prove it, you can change the text in Wikipedia, I think.
