Zalatina refers to one of the authentic and traditional meat products from Cyprus that is made of meat taken from various pork parts, but mainly the head and legs. The meat is then washed thoroughly and boiled in salted water. After de-boning, the meat is cut into very small pieces while the boiled water is filtered in order to remove the fat and then blended with citrus juice and vinegar. The end juice is boiled again along with the sliced meat and scented with fresh Cyprus rosemary. The final product is poured into bowls and left to cool down in the fridge. Zalatina is usually served as a traditional starter.
