Russian Salad



































This is so old fashioned that I am almost embarrassed to post it. It dates from the sixties and was a big part of the hors d'oeuvres tray in big hotels at that time . It consists of mainly root vegetables that are diced and cooked in salt water one by one . They are then plunged into ice cold water to retain their color and allowed to cool. They are then put into a sieve to drain and finally mixed with mayonnaise and a touch of garlic to form a very tasty salad. As you can see here I rolled some slices of ham and filled them with the salad and they were delicious with some tossed greens. You can find many recipes for this on the Internet.

So retro! Sometimes there's something to be said for a classic.
