  • I've always loved Russian

    Submitted by Maida on 18. January 2015 - 16:53.

    I've always loved Russian salad and thought I'd give this a try. I don't remember olives being in the salad but given that we love olives I thought why not! I excluded the tuna thinking I will add it in tomorrow for lunch. Absolutely great recipe. The gherkin , egg mixture spread right through the mayonnaise and coated all the potato. Everything cooked perfectly in the given time. Thanks , I will definitely be making this often.  Love

     I made this again doubling the gherkins, peas and corn and left out the olives. Absolutely delicious!

    this is delicious, I changed the potato to sweet potato or sometimes half and half it not big olive eaters though, so pending on who is home as to whether or not I use them. the more I make it the easier it is to make.

    Can't wait to try this. How many gherkins are required? And is it the English style sweet gherkins or the Polski Ogorki style? tmrc_emoticons.)
