This month Christianna proposed us to swap the recipe for Russian salad. Now Russian salad exist also in Italy, but it is a slightly different dish than it is over here. For us, Russian salad is an appetizer often served at Christmas consisting of diced boiled carrots, peas and potatoes dressed in mayo. Often it is molded into beautiful shapes and sometimes covered in gelatine to make it look better.
Of course for this swap I had to go with Russian salad. At the same time my fridge didn’t sport any peas and I had only 1 potato. So I decided to go with a slightly more liberal interpretation of the original recipe and I mixed in beets and squash and edamame. It turned out pretty well. And very orange thanks to the squash!
You can eat it as a salad or as a dip, whatever you like most.
Now I am curious to see what the other members of the swap did, are you not? To check out all the recipe get to the end of this post and check out the InLinkz!
