Russian Salad - Rosiki Salata
Although russian salad is obviously not a Greek salad dish, I have included it here as it has been a regular dish used by the Greeks to accompany food for a long time. It is an easy to make, colourful salad, ideal to have as an accompaniment to a main meal or for a light lunch.
2 large potatoes - boiled and diced
1/2 cup boiled dry beans
1/2 cup steamed runner (green) beans
3/4 cup boiled peas
2 or 3 cooked beetroot, diced
1 cooked carrot, diced
2 - 4 eggs, hard boiled and cooled
2 - 3 cups mayonnaise
a few olives
1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped gherkins
Keep back a few slices of beetroot and eggs. Put all the rest of the vegetables in a salad bowl.
Add half the mayonnaise and mix all in together well.
On top spread the rest of the mayonnaise.
Carefully garnish with the beetroot and eggs that we kept aside. Also garnish with a few gherkins and parsley on the surface of the mayonnaise.
Finish off with the olives.
Keep the salad refrigerated until ready to serve.
