All Vegetable Russian Salad

Labels: ,

Russian Salad

Russian salad, which was popular in the Philippines in the 80s, is supposed to have cooked ham, diced chicken, tongue, etc. I got this all vegetable version from my mother-in-law who used to serve it on New Year's Eve maybe to have a balanced dinner menu which is usually loaded with all sorts of meat and poultry dishes.

Russian Salad
2 apples, peeled, diced and mixed with a little mayonnaise
2 cups cubed cooked potatoes
2 cups cubed cooked carrots
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup raisins
¼ cup shredded cabbage
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups cubed cooked and chilled beets mixed with ¼ cup mayonnaise
2 cups mayonnaise
iceberg lettuce cups
  • Mix potatoes, carrots, celery, apples, cabbage, raisins, salt and sugar, chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Add mayonnaise, mix well. Add beets, mix gently. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 4 hours. Serve in lettuce cups, if desired.
Russian Salad
this salad pairs well with meatloaf, fried embutido, roast chicken, or pork chops.
