Also we make this salad with pickles or red beet in Russia -)

Salada Russa is how we say it in Portuguese and we too have it often back home, you see it more often in the summer served at bbq or picnics.

no sè de donde proviene el nombre de esta ensalada "rusa" serà por la mezcla de ingredientes? ya voy a averiguar, un beso Flor de Bowen, Mza

Interesting. At Rodizio Grill ("The Brazilian Steakhouse") they always have a potato salad on the salad bar that looks exactly like that. I never knew it came from Russia.

I've made ensalada rusa dressing it with a little olive oil and vinegar, then molding it and just covering outside with a little mayo (sort of like icing). I've also see it with hard boiled eggs and 'red' from the addition of beets. I guess there are lots of variations...and they're all delicious.

This is a favorite in our household. We call it olive salad, since we add olives to it and shredded or cubed chicken breasts. There are many variations to this Russian potato salad.

That looks delicious and thanks for the link! I still need to make an old school original Russian version one of these days.

It's true! It's simple and always present on our table. At home my mum used to add shreds cold chicken leftovers,

By the way, I have posted a link to your blog on my last blog entry! :o)

Potato salad is always a welcome addition to any table.
