  1. I have had a version of this with chicken meat and potatoes which was very good! Is that not traditional?

    1. Dear Jim,
      well this probably not the tradition Russian salad in Russia, but when you mention Russion salad here in Serbia, you get this (even in hotels, restaurant etc.). Variations exist, of course, but this is the most common recipe. 🙂
