Russian Salad

Russian Salad
2 medium sized potatoes, boiled, peeled, cut in small cubes
1/3 cup carrots, peeled, boiled, cut in small cubes
1/3 cup sweet peas, frozen, thawed
2 boiled eggs, cut in small cubes
1/2 cup cup small pickled cucumbers (cornichons), cut in small cubes
2/3 cup mayonnaise

Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized cup, then transfer onto the serving plate. You may garnish with black olives. Serve with any kind of meal as a salad on the side. Or it's perfect for a sandwich using the corner of a Turkish Bread.

This is not Russian Salad, this is traditional Latvian salad and it's called Rasol

I know this salad as a Russian salad, I love it and in my family we make it for all holidays.By the way if you make to much that salad can stay in the refrigerator for 1 week - and every day tastes better :)))

I could also say that this is not a Russian salad but a traditional Polish salad, as we can see many coutries treat it as 'their' salad:)))greet btw. if you add chunks(bits)of apples too,that's a lot better:)

The White Russians (after the October Revolution) escaped from ex Soviet Union introduced the Russian Salad to my home country. Obviously we loved and called it Russian salad:)

I am going to add apple chunks next time, for sure, Thank you:)

I think without bits of onion it 's missing sth. It's my childhood favourite and I always use potatoes, carrots, eggs, green peas, pickled cucumbers, onion and apple, sometimes I add leek or chives too. Of course it must be with mayonaise :)
