Russian Salad – Franciasaláta is a diced vegetable salad with a mayo-sour cream dressing. In Hungary we usually don’t put boiled egg and ham in it, however, we add diced apple. Oh, and diced cheese is a real treat too!

But all in all, you can’t go wrong if you add some extra ingredients to your salad!

Pst: A dash of white wine can spice the dressing up.

There are two main ways you can make this salad:

  • The easier, quicker way is to buy the Frozen Russian Salad Mix or Frozen Mixed Vegetable and cook that as the base of your salad, also it’s the way I make it.
  • The harder, longer, but more autentic way is to peel, dice and prepare your own vegetables for the salad such as: carrots, potatos, peas, corn.
