"A famous, classic South American dish otherwise known as 'Ensalada Rusa.' Makes absolutely the best appetizer. Ready to serve as soon as it is chilled, and even better overnight." — Saul

very very good! I substituted fresh peas and corn instead of canned and didn't change another thing. My argentine husband LOVED it. Thank you so much for sharing :-)
Good, economical salad to bring to a party. A bit dry, however.
What a delicious potato salad! I used a frozen mixture of peas and corn for the mixed veggies, and I loved the colors they added to the salad. The green olives give the salad a bit of a salty flavor which is outstanding. An unusual but great twist on traditional American potato salad.
I grew up eating this salad and it is just the way my mom used to make it. I do use slightly cooked frozen veggies and works just as well.
I loved this recipe!
My husband really liked this..I felt it needed more seasoning/spices.I thought it was bland..BUT I DID really like the ingredients, otherwise...will be making this again...but will add onion, salt, pepper and maybe a touch of cayenne.
This is about as close to the traditional "Ensalada Rusa" as I've tasted. It's a great companion to the Argentine Asado (BBQ). I personally like more mayo, so I increased it to 1 cup. Also, the mayo in Argentina is lemony to begin with, so the lemon juice here is very important. You can also buy similar Mayo in Latin markets (Mayonesa elaborada con limon).
UUMM great recipe almos like my mom's but less original.. i found that using real veggies tastes a lot better.. also i dont like adding mustard but there are many ways to tweak it so it really doesnt matter its better up to your taste..
