Russian Salad, Variation of Potato Salad

russian salad

My first taste of Russian salad was from my aunt. I never knew one could make red beets into a salad.

The salad taste sweet with a slight tangy flavor due to the tart apples and the vinegar marinade. It is basically a potato salad except that the natural red color of the beets seep through the potatoes and the other ingredients. In wikipedia, Russian Salad is not even colored red.

I believe the Pinoy version of “Russian Salad” is very delicious. Try preparing it.

1/3 cup diced sweet ham
1 1/2 cup diced cooked chicken
3 cups cubed cooked potatoes
1 cup cubed cooked carrots
1/4 cup finely diced celery
vinegar, salt and pepper to taste
