"This recipe was the favorite of the Russian dishes served at our wedding. Simple, tangy and can be used more than a side dish. Serve on top of bread or crackers, or spoon onto tomato slices for a more low-carb option." — MOJOKADO

shredded mozzarella cheese
Suprisingly good. I cut up french bread put a slice of roma tomato and piled the cheese salad on top. Loved it!
try gouda instead - this is what we originally put in there:gives more taste to it.
Love it! I wouldn't call it a salad though, it's a spread. I suggest gouda instead of mozzarella, that's how it's made in Russia.
We love garlic but, as written, this is just way too much. I prefer to use either roasted garlic - the flavor is MUCH more mellow/ less mouth-burning - or, at a pinch, garlic powder. I like to toast slices of crusty bread, spread them with the cheese mixture, and then broil. I haven't tried it with tomato, but I bet that would taste great too. Thanks!
I have lived in Russia for almost 13 yrs now- and this is one of my favorites! One change is needed - Gouda cheese! This is perfect as spread on bread - with soup!
I agree with the other viewer to add garlic powder because the intensity of the minced uncooked garlic was a bit much. Everyone thought it was great and couldn't believe it was made with so few ingredients.
I made this the night before serving and it gave time for the flavors to blend. It was a really flavorful and wonderful part of our dinner, served on rye bread with other assorted meats and cheeses.
Just like we ate in Moscow!
