Depending which part of former USSR you're from. This recipe is not quite near to how it should be. Here is the quickest way of making this salad:
You'll need - potatoes, carrots, canned peas (if you like), eggs, pickles (kosher style for the best taste), meat of your choice (bologna, smoked kolbasa like Capicolo, crab meat, chicken breast, boiled beef), mayo (preferrably Hellmann's).
1. In one large pot boil 3-4 potatoes, 1-2 carrots, 3-4 eggs. Once veggies are soft, drain the water and leave it to cool off. Put eggs into the cold water in the meantime. Once potatoes and carrots are cooled, peel them.
2. Cube potatoes, then carrots, then pickles, then meat of your choice, eggs can be cubed or shredded using the large shredder section. Peas go on top if preferred. I prefer to layer in this particular order so the heaviest items are on the bottom.
3. Add a few tablespoons of mayo and mix it well. For more decadent taste, you can add some Russian hot mustard (available in every European store countrywide).
4. Season with salt & black pepper if preferred and enjoy. Can be eaten on its own as a meal or served as a sidedish.
It is even better with diced (baked & chilled) chicken instead of bologna or 50x50! It is better to use ZerGut Russian style Dills Pickles and Hellmann's Real (not Light!) mayonnaise or Russian mayonnaise like "Chumak" etc.
Yum! I didn't put the bologna in it because I forgot to get it while at the grocery store today, but this still turned out great! I will definitely make this again. Maybe next time I'll remember the bologna! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
