I ate this dish in the former Yugoslavia in 1986 (now Croatia) on the way to the famous Plitvicer Lakes. I always ordered a Grill Plate, it was a safe bet because of the language barrier. One way or another I ended up with
Cevapcici, a Balkan sausage on my plate.
I prepare this dish with
Tzatziki on the side, see recipe
