How to make Russian / Polish Salad



  • 2 mediuam boiled/peeled potatoes
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 boiled carrots
  • 1 celery stalk (optional)
  • 1 apple (optional)
  • 2 sour dill pickles (optional)
  • 2 cups of green peas (fresh or canned)
  • 3 tablespoons of Polish mustard (available in Polish store)
  • 0.5 – 1 cup of mayonnaise (depending on taste)
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Dice up all the veggies/fruit into small cubes
  2. Add mustard, mayo, salt and pepper and mix together. There is no right amount for these ingredients and it all depends on taste. Some people like a lot of mayo, some like less. Also, pickles, celery and apple are optional and again, depend on taste. My mom sometimes adds ham to this recipe, although I personally like it better vegetarian.
  3. This salad is very versatile and tastes good with just about anything – meats, potatoes, pastas, perogies, even curries!
