Salad French


[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Mayo, a staple of life in cold climates and it helps keep food from spoiling and perhaps just one more reason why we bake chicken in mayo, stir fry fish in mayo, use mayo on many types of salads, etc. This mayo consuming salad is called a "French" salad and yes, it is popular in France and was imported to Eastern Europe. This is very quick and easy to make. Prepare all the ingredients with a grater and large  bowl.

Ingredients:
2 apples
4 boiled eggs
2 fresh carrots
mayonnaise
onion
cheese


Preparation:
1 layer - scalded onions, then spread mayonnaise
2 layer - 1 apple, grate, spread with mayonnaise
Layer 3 - 2 eggs, grate, spread with mayonnaise
4 layer - 1 carrot, grate, mayonnaise
5 layer - cheese, grate.

Repeat layers to the top of the bowl. Set in fridge to chill for 15-20 minutes before serving.

Food author Selmak Henissi of Petite Plates did a piece on Russian salads called Walking Thru the Russian Mazes and linked the Mendeleyev Journal page on salads as part of her examples.

Henissi also spoke with a group at Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Washington, DC about Russian food traditions.
